United States made the first generation stretch limousines in 1928. At that time there were no vans or mini-buses available, so these vehicles that were spacious enough, were used to carry the people and their luggage around. Later on these limousines became a status symbol and they rapidly became famous in the circle of celebrities and the elite of the town. Due to their high prices though you won’t be able to cash your car or sell any car to buy them but they are still worth checking out.

A total number of 3,568 units of the Checker Aerobus were made.

The car had fiber glass windows and was powered by a Ford 2.8 Litre 6 cylinder engine.
