Up for sale now, in our Houston showroom is this very unique and rare 1966 Checker Marathon! The Marathon was introduced in September 1960 for the 1961 model year. The car was produced by the Checker Motors Corporation of Kalamazoo, Michigan, between 1961 and 1982. These cars were made famous and are most well known for their role for decades as a New York City taxi cab.

This 66’ is in fantastic condition and is a real gem to have in our showroom as it is a true survivor car. This one is shown in its original baby blue factory color paint that looks great. The car has been repainted within the last few years and it still looks great. The exterior body is straight and body panel gaps are even. The doors open & close with ease. The paint quality is good, with no dings, dents, or scuffs to be mentioned. The chrome bumpers, trim, grill, & door handles are in great condition as they have been reconditioned & re-chromed. The rear of the car is our favorite with the vertical tail lights on each side give the car a unique appearance. The car has new bumpers on the front & rear. There is no rust on body of the car to be found, the trouble spots on these cars do not show any issues. The car also has a new front windshield, rear window, & new weather stripping on them.

Powering this lengthy car is its original 283 CiD short block that is paired to a 3-speed automatic transmission. The engine starts right up and is healthy throughout the power band and the transmission shifts smooth and gives the car a nice quality ride. The engine & trans are original to the car and have not been rebuilt as the car only has 56k original miles!!

Looking at the interior, you will see the ORIGINAL interior. This car was a barn find and only needed a exterior repaint to get it back up to par. The interior is in excellent condition and has plenty of room! There is about a 3-foot space between the front & rear seats! The dash, carpet, door panels, headliner, & seats are all in great shape, are comfortable, & looks cool. The window cranks work as they should. All dash equipment works as it should. This car is a survivor car so it will have a little wear on it but how would you look in 50 years??

Options on this car include; AC (blows cool, not cold), power brakes, power steering, seat belts, vinyl & cloth interior, white wall tires, & more! For more information on this 1966 Checker Marathon Deluxe call the Houston Showroom at 832-243-6220 or email houston@gatewayclassiccars.com

2012 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500

2012 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500


Engine: 5.4L V8 F DOHC 32V
Transmission: 6 Speed Manual
Mileage: 4,752 ( actual )

Professionally crafted by Galpin Auto Sports aka GAS in Van Nuys, California, this handmade GT-500 is a sight to behold! With over 8 months alone in the body and paint, the body was sculpted out of metal and was coated in a custom pepper gray metallic paint that looks sinister from all angles. Shaved door handles keep the look sleek and freshly powder coated Forgiato 3-piece GTR wheels finish off the look well. A clear bra was placed on multiple areas of the car as well to protect it from stone chips. This car makes an amazing show car but performs just as well on the track! Awaiting to come alive under the hood sits a 5.4L V8 that came in the GT-500’s originally, however this one has been equipped with a 2.3L VMP supercharger producing a dyno-proven 700+ horsepower to the rear wheels! Bigger injectors, oversized aluminum Shelby intercooler, Ford Racing single blade throttle body connected to a cold air intake, and a Diablo tune insures max efficiency and power. Keeping this Shelby hooked to the pavement is a Ford Racing performance lowering suspension and a Watts 4-link in the rear. This paired with the 11.5” wide wheels up front and 14” wide wheels on the rear, this Mustang handles like it is on rails! With so much power and excellent cornering abilities, the only thing left are the brakes. Taking care of this is a set of Wilwood disc brakes both front and rear with 6-piston calipers up front and 4-pistons in the rear grabbing down on a set of cross drilled and slotted rotors. There are few cars out there that are as well-equipped as this GT-500 and would make an excellent car for a true driving enthusiast. Whether their plan is to show it off or rip it around the track this wild Mustang will not disappoint. This vehicle is located in our Denver showroom. You can view this 2012 Ford Mustang GT-500 in greater detail including HD pictures and an HD video of it running and driving at Gatewayclassiccars.com. If you are interested in purchasing this vehicle or have more questions regarding it please call us at (303) 872-4722 or email us at Denver@gatewayclassiccars.com.
