“Two New Models Combine Retro Appearance With Twenty First Century Automotive Technology”

Checker Motor Cars has announced plans to produce two second generation Checker vehicles. The Sport Pick-up Crossover model will combine the usefulness of a pick-up truck with the fun of a full size vehicle, reminiscent of the El Camino or Ranchero of days gone by. The Aerobus model will offer features of the iconic Checker sedan, as well as from a sport pick-up body and the early generation Aerobus V1 (A six-door, twelve-passenger sedan). The A888 will offer four full rows of seating through four standard length doors and two extended rearward doors. The 3rd row seat will fold to allow for additional leg room when not in use.
