COMING IN FEBRUARY, 1998: WALTHERS HO SCALE 1959 CHECKER MARATHON TAXI CAB IN HOLLOW CAST RESIN

Milwaukee, WI: Walthers announces it will release a new, HO Scale, hollow cast resin version of the 1959 Checker Marathon Taxi cab in February, 1998. This American classic, a roomy, comfortable sedan, epitomized urban travel throughout the country. First produced in the late 1950s, it was the car of choice for taxi fleets. Its styling remained virtually unchanged until production ended in the late 1970s.

The Walthers resin Checker Cab kit (933-4001) features a hollow body with window openings and interior detail. It comes with decals for different cab companies and retails $7.98. On a layout, the Checker Taxi will look great picking up passengers at the depot or waiting for a fare on a busy city street. Few city scenes would be complete without a fair share of yellow taxi cabs lining the streets in front of movie theaters, department stores and hotels. Use the Walthers Checker Cab with Cornerstone Series® structures such as Merchant's Row III (933-3064), Clarkesville Depot (933-3063) and the Amtrak Station (933-3038).

The Checker Cab kit is available from your local Walthers Dealer.
