Looks like a somewhat "checkered" history from Wikipedia (GRIN), but it 
looks as if they built taxis (cars) from 1922 to 1959.

An excerpt:
>From 1922 until 1959 Checker's production vehicles were built almost 
exclusively for the commercial livery (taxi) business, although cars for 
personal use were available on request. Checker entered the consumer vehicle 
market when it saw purchases of its taxis decline.

Later, JR
