Description for Other Makes 1981

This is a 1981 Checker Marathon A11 - the private version of the same car that was used as a taxi.
The car is in poor condition and needs a full going-through or would make a great parts car if you have another Checker that you are restoring.
We bought it in 2000, but have not driven it on the road since 2006 or so - it had failed the MD emissions test and I never found time to fix it. The car ran smooth, but it always had low power and was sluggish. The V-8 engine and automatic transmission are GM. The previous owner had replaced the timing chain, and my suspicion is that the chain is "one tooth off" from where it should be. I have not even tried to start it in years.
There is rust-through on the lower rocker panels, as well as many other spots. I have an extra, rust free passenger front door and rear trunk lid that will be included in the sale.
Because the car was parked in an unpaved driveway with a lot of trees, there is dirt and tree residue on the car. The title for the car is clear, and it is currently stored inside a garage in the Baltimore, Maryland area.
