I think it's a 1940 Checker.

And, for the record, they are butt-ugly from the front.

That was fairly interesting. I only glanced through it, I'll read it in full later.

Yeah, no. Just, no.

I should have commented. It thought it was really interesting. You can really see the progress. When you go from here back to the beginning, you don't even recognize them, but with the incremental changes you do.

Interesting that there was no Checker A-11, but I guess that would be to obvious.

Why not? Quiet, comfy, just not economical at the time with an 11 mile range and expensive maintenance. Is it because on September 13, 1899, the first American to be killed by an automobile was run over by one of these? ;)

I don't think I'd like being the bumper.

Also, that first American victim was probably pitched outta the thing before it ran him over.

They only went as fast as the horse draw Hansoms, probably not over 10 or 12 mph most of the time.
The seating choice is the front end of a battery, or back end of a horse.

I love the look, however, I know any vehicle where the four fenders protrude from the sides, has less room inside the cab and/or cargo area than it could have on that wheelbase. I know this because I drive one.
