Remember, that show is from 1947, so before anyone shouting "its checker marathon", no its not. They werent made before 1960.

Umm... Nope. It's a cartoon made for a computer game, not a show from 1947. They could put in that cartoon every vehicle made prior to a 2013 so your argument is just stupid. It can be a De Soto of some sort but this car don't even look like a taxi from '47. Checker Marathon will be a better option. Badge on the hood is very similar to Checker. I must check this cartoon in game. Maybe quality will be better.

In the ending credits you can clearly see 1947. So your argument is just stupid.

Moorehead Rides Again is not a real 1947 tv show... it's a 2013 fake tv show made for a game. So it's entirely possible that this is a Marathon.

Because in GTA universe they were that kind of advanced they invented design 1960s in 1940s.
So it is entirely possible that Zirconnium Stratum is also car that will be revealed as a new 2016 Nissan GT-R Wagon.
You know what: HVY Cutter is a real vehicle. From 2030, so nobody know it, but since GTA universe is 15 years ahead, it is 100% true proof.

Why not!

No, I understand Tuppence870. It's like the Premier or Bullet in GTA: SA. Those cars are based on cars out time (1993, 2004) the game is set (1992), because the game is later realised in real time (2004). - Sorry, it's difficult to explain a time paradox in english if you aren't native speaker xD -

GTA: The Time Paradox Game.

My point is that they could've got it wrong. The Man from U.N.C.L.E. features this 1984 Trabant, but the movie is set in 1963. Film makers and game developers get these things wrong all the time, so it could theoretically be any vehicle released before 2013, regardless of whether it fits the stated time period or not.

And we already know the HVY Cutter is based on a Made for Movie from Die Hard: With a Vengeance.

I feel like GTA does this on purpose...

Wow...the only thing that should be focused here the car itself and nothing else.

Read my and Tuppence's comment again and again till you get the point. There is a lot of games or movies set in the past featuring modern vehicles like CoD: Black Ops with 2007 Jeep C8.

Anyway this taxi is not a Marathon because of a single pair of headlights. With two lights on each side, it will be clear it's Marathon.

Fine. I am man and I admit that I couldnt win this. It is still dumb for ´47 (although fictional) show, but we can all agree that this is 1956 Checker A8.

Nothing is dumb there. Checker A8 looks pretty close. Nice find.
