In 1933, a new 8-cylinder Lycoming-powered cab, the Model T, was introduced. It featured full-length running boards, traditional headlights and unusual circular inserts over its otherwise traditional hood louvers. Our 1933 Checker Model T Taxi Cab model is handmade out of metal. It features many intricate parts such as fenders, wheels, hood, grills, taxi sign, and a signature 1933 license plate. It measures about 14 inches long by 6 inches wide and has a scale of 1:8. This Model T is an iconic piece that was placed in the famous Harrah’s collection and eventually found its way to the Auburn-Cord-Duesenberg Museum in Auburn, Indiana. It will make a perfect gift to display in your home or office!

In the 1900s, there were two dominant taxi companies in Chicago, Checker Taxi, and Yellow Cab Company. Checker Taxi became the first cab company to hire African-American drivers and first to require that drivers pick up all fares, not just European-American ones. Yellow Cab Company was sold to Parmelee Transportation Company which made Parmelee, which includes Yellow Cab and Checker Taxi, the largest cab company in the United States in 1940.
