The Saf-T-Cab Corporation of Cleveland, Ohio was a Cleveland taxi business owned by Errett Lobban Cord. The taxicabs were initially built in the Auburn factory in Auburn, Indiana but were quite separate from the Auburn automobile. The Saf-T-Cab was powered by a special six-cylinder bus-type engine and had a heavy-duty chassis frame. 

E. L. Cord took control of Checker Motors in 1933 and Checker built a Saf-T-Cab based on the Checker Model T taxi from 1933 to 1936 in Kalamazoo, Michigan. 


The Saf-T-Cab carried an oval shaped radiator emblem, see black enamel example shown above. This Saf-T-Cab radiator emblem is scarce. The following is a metal only version of the Saf-T-Cab radiator emblem, which is also scarce:
