1962 Checker Marathon Dallas Taxicab - Oswald's Getaway Car

Oswald Cab

This is a 1962 Checker Marathon Dallas taxicab known as Oswalds getaway car. Only minutes after Lee Harvey Oswald assassinated President Kennedy from the sixth floor of the book depository building he casually walked out the front door, hailed down this taxi cab serial #36 and had the driver William Wayne Whaley drive him back to his rooming house. Whaley tried to make conversation with Oswald. “What the hell you think happened out there?�? he recalled asking Oswald as an opener. Oswald didn’t answer him back. He asked to be dropped off two blocks past his rooming house. The fare was .95¢ he gave him a dollar and said keep the change.
