Second owner purchased on October 25. 1980
Car was relocated to Alexandria. La
Vehicle was the wife's daily driver as the husband also drove a Checker. In the early 1990s. She had the Vinyl top removed and the vehicle professionally painted as seen now: black bottom. grey top. with a silver pinstripe separating the two colors. She also commissioned a local mechanic's shop to remove the diesel motor and transmission and installed a Chevrolet 350 V8 with its paired turbo 350 transmission out of a running. non-wrecked truck.

The second owner passed away in the late 1990s and the vehicle was used by family members for several years before being parked. Her nephew attempted to acquire the title for the vehicle but could not do so. After the family could not agree upon succession of the vehicle. I purchased the Checker from the Nephew with a bill of sale only. no title. I have had a local title company attempt to acquire a title but with the Louisiana vehicle title laws being so strict after Hurricane Katrina I have not been successful.

The car is a very solid car with the only serious rust in the normal places: on the rocker panels. the rear fender seams by the trunk lid. nbsp; hood. spare tire well in the trunk. nd on the driver floor board. I have a 3 inch binder full of original manuals. receipts. invoices. and the original window sticker.   While the rear bumper was off. one of the family members dented the rear passenger side quarter panel. as seen in the picture.   I just installed a Griffin aluminum radiator. but with no fan shroud it wants to overheat while stationary. The tires will need replacing for their age but hold air. as well as both batteries (on a full charge it starts right up but the batteries do not stay charged past a couple of days). Even without the title. I had planned on a decent restoration for use in local parades but I have too many projects and a newborn son and time has become very limited for my toys.

I can assist in delivery or meeting half way for the right deal. Also interested in trades for  Hudson trucks or hotrods. or track-day cars. Vehicle is for sale locally and I reserve the right to end auction early.
