Checker Cab Weddings
The famous New York Checker Cab was produced by the Checker Motors Corporation of Kalamazoo, Michigan. The first cars were produced in 1924, with the last (and most recognisable model) Marathon leaving the production line in 1982.
The ‘Checker’, particularly the 1956-82 A11/Marathon, remains the most famous taxi cab vehicle in the United States. It’s notoriety equals the London Taxi, which went unchanged throughout its use – and it is considered a true icon of American motoring history.
Our totally original New York Checker Cab is fully restored with all the features these iconic cars are famous for – the limo-sized rear seat, checker stripes, air conditioning, roof light and flag fall meter. Against Melbourne’s sophisticated urban backdrop, it makes for an unforgettable photo session – and it’s completely unique amongst Australian bridal cars.
All hirings include white ribbons, red carpet entry, a refreshment pack and great old-fashioned service.
New York Checker Cabs have been painstakingly restored to their former glory and contain all the authentic equipment and markings consistent with the period when these cars plied their trade on the streets of New York. From the classic fare meter to the roof light and of course, the cavernous space in the huge back seat, these wedding cars are guaranteed to stop traffic and crane necks. For an extra large Checker Cab experience, try our extra roomy six-seater.
Stretch limos are a dime a dozen but an authentic bright yellow New York Checker cab… that’s a different thing altogether. For maximum impact, we recommend hiring all three of them!
