1964   Model SED MA A-12 CHECKER MARATHON – 120 inch wheel base

VIN: A12533713269

This is a San Diego California 1964 Checker Marathon car.   I have owned it for since 2002.   It has been stored inside. It started right up and ran smooth with no mechanical noises when I got it but over the years I believe the fuel has turned bad and the battery is dead so now it does not start. I put in new oil and a new filter when I got it and it will still crank. The automatic transmission is smooth shifting.   The tires have good tread. however. I would change out the tires due to their age.   The brakes are good.   This car was originally gray and now painted checker cab yellow.   It looked really good when I got it. but now. part way through the restoration process (see inside garage photos). it is dirty and somewhat disassembled. There is a dent in the hood.   The leading edge and one side seam of the hood and the area below the back license plate is rusted through.   The interior is very spacious. I took the head liner out and the front and back windows out.   All windows are in good shape.   All door windows crank up and down.   There are rips in the front bench seat. The back seat has no rips. The driver side mirror is gone.   All the Checker symbols inside and outside the car are gone.   Most of the chrome exterior parts I have but there are a couple pieces missing.   The car needs all new weather stripping throughout.

New parts and work done by me:

Relined the brake shoes (all drums)

Turned all the brake drums.

New brake master cylinder (dual split system front and back)

New brake slave cylinders in the wheels.

All new steel brake lines and all new brake hoses.

New shocks in the back.

All new steering bushings.

I have a photo copy of the owner's manual and a repair manual.

I have a paperback book - Checker “Road Test” limited edition. by Brooklands Books.

Of Interest:

1964 was the last year that the industrial in line 6 cylinder Kaiser Continental L-Head 6L-226 cu. inch engine (80 HP) was used switching to a Chevrolet straight 6 as the standard offering.

 The last Checker model rolled off the assembly line on July 12th. 1982.

I drove this car when I first got it and have based my description on that experience.   Please ask any specific detailed questions before placing a bid. Please do not bid if you do not plan to buy the car. Payment must be received within 7 business days of the close of this auction and the car needs to be picked up within 25 business days.   That gives you a whole month to get organized for the car pick up. or ship it.   I will accept a money order. a wire transfer. or a check.   Your check must clear the bank before you can take position of this vehicle.
