1977 Austin FX4You are bidding on a vehicle that is titled as a 1977 FX4 London Taxi with a 2.7L Nissan Diesel 4-cylinder engine. This London Taxi Fairway was restored/modified by The London Taxi Group, Ridgemont Beds, England in the fall of 2011. New wiring harness, brakes, tires were installed during restoration process along with an engine overhaul and rebuilt 3-speed automatic transmission. In addition, a Kenworth AM/FM radio/CD player installed in drivers compartment, an Oogah horn, and two 12 volt fans installed to move air during the summer. Finishing touches included two coats of the classic London Taxi black paint.
Since delivery in September 2011 (mileage 180,000), three (3) cricket seats were added: two facing the rear in the passenger compartment and one facing the front in the luggage storage area next to the driver allowing for a total of six passengers.
The Taxi has a manually operated sun roof, electric left side front door window, two (2) electrically operated side view mirrors, power brakes and power steering. In the boot there is a spare tire, jack and some spare parts (fan belt, oil filter, windshield wipers etc) plus the side door-step.
The main blemish is the scrape on the left rear bumper (see photo).
The vehicle runs great with no vibration at 70 mph. It's always been garaged (in Dallas, TX) and has been serviced by Kip Motor Company, Dallas, Texas. Owner is selling the vehicle because of downsizing and only has a two car garage for three vehicles.
This vehicle is perfect for a B&B operation, a boutique retail establishment, or the British aficionado wanting to chauffeur family or friends in an authentic London Taxi.
