Checker Car Logo

Checker Motors Corporation was a Kalamazoo, Michigan based automotive subcontractor that manufactured taxicabs used by Checker Taxi. Checker Motors Corporation was established by Morris Markin in 1922 through a merger of 'Commonwealth Motors' and 'Markin Automobile Body'.

Checker made the iconic American taxi cab which was valued by taxicab companies for its durability in heavy use. Special features included large rear seats and trunks. The company had trouble competing with fleet discounts offered by the larger manufacturers as well as economies of scale in procuring components. The final models were produced in 1982.

On January 16, 2009, the company filed for Chapter 11 protection in U.S. Bankruptcy Court.
