FM's Checker is listed as a 1963. The  license plates are 1964 NY World's Fair. The cabbie, Shamus O'Toole's Taxi  License expired in March of 1963 (see dashboard). Should grandpa make a citizen's arrest?

If that cabbie has been operating expired since '63 he should ruefully change his name to Tool O'Shameless.

Great detail here along with an interesting story line. Scoff-laws were common then. Thanks Rich.

I sold mine many years ago when bad rash developed.  I'd add it back if I could find a good one at a reasonable price.
