37: Checker Marathon
Like many of the American automakers that are no more, Checker made quite a few memorable vehicles. The Checker Marathon was released during the sixties and had a powerful engine and a unique design. The Marathon is most notable for its tenure as a New York Taxi Cab, long before the Ford Crown Victoria became the go-to for cabbies. The car is one of the few vehicles that retained its 1960s design well into the 1980s. The car was known for being able to take a beating and it is known as one of the most reliable vehicles in the world.
New York has since vastly updated the Taxi fleet and the rise of ride-sharing services has rung the death knell for the modern Taxi. Still, if you can get your hands on an original Checker Marathon, this makes for a stellar muscle car.
