Riding back to this year, you might have been hailing a Checker cab on your way to see the premier of The Godfather. From the backseat of a Checker cab you might have heard the Watergate Scandal announced or the All American classic American Pie, by Don McLean, over the radio. During this year the first episode of The Price is Right, hosted by Bob Barker, was aired on CBS. Americans celebrated their first world chess champion, Bobby Fischer.

What we love about this car:

The memories it provides of a time gone by, of big, comfortable, taxi cabs, seen in every big city. A true American Classic that we are proud to offer as a Chicago Cream and Green Cab. Truly a rare and unique vehicle that is super fun to ride in.
  • This classic cab is restored to look and feel like 1972 Chicago.
  • The interior has been slightly upgraded to a Limousine luxury feel.
  • With a taxi meter & badging, and RTT amenities, this is truly a fun ride!
