The final version of the Checker vehicle designed primarily for use as a taxi cab debuted in 1958 (based on the 1956 body style with "updated" grille and quad headlamps) and continued, almost aesthetically unchanged until the company got out of the vehicle manufacturing business in 1982.
This specific example is a 1963 (or later) version because that is the year the vehicle parking lights changed from white plastic to amber.
As homely as a grandmother's shoe, and hopelessly out of sync with automotive styling trends within 3 years of its introduction, the Checker (available to the public after 1960, in Superba and Marathon models) remains a nostalgic icon of the taxi cab industry. Who doesn't see a vintage Checker and come down with a smile?
