Both cab companies used them here when I was a kid. My Uncle drove cab on and off over the years.
Wife brought our first kid home in one.(I was away with Uncle Sam)
One took me from the train station to the induction center in Chicago. Actually 8 of us, Gypsy cab driver, drove like a wild man!
There were several here locally that were private owned and were really nice cars.(models befor the DOT bumpers)
One even had a raised roof and a wheel chair ramp! Saw that one taking it's last ride on a rollback about a year ago.

According to Hemmings Classic Car Checker produced 20,000 cars from 1922 -1982 .
I would have thought they had made 10 times that many of just the Marathon .
