CARBODIES LONDON TAXI
I BOUGHT THIS ICONIC CAR A FEW YEARS BACK AS A NOVELTY
IDEA WAS TO MOTHBALL FOREVER AS ITS A PIECE OF ENGLISH HERITAGE.
I HAD A DUTCH CUSTOMER FLY OVER AND BUY 2 CLASSIC PORSCHES OFF ME AND HE ASKED ME IF I HAD OR COULD GET ANY RED PHONEBOXES OR RED PILLARBOXES, I THOUGHT HE WAS MAD BUT HE EXPLAINED ANYTHING BRITISH THAT WE TAKE FOR GRANTED THERE ARE SERIOUS COLLECTORS SNAPPING OUR HISTORY UP AS INVESTMENTS.
THIS GOT ME THINKING,IN 2005 LONDOrN TRANSPORT DE COMMISSIONED ALL THE ROUTEMASTER LONDON BUSES, THEY WERE FLOGGED OFF FOR ABOUT £7000 EACH, THEY WERE ALL SNAPPED UP AND DISAPPEARED TO PLACS LIKE USA AND CHINA USED AS TOURIST ATTRACTIONS, TRY AND BUY ONE NOW FOR LESS THAN A LARGE MORTGAGES!
SAME THING IS ABOUT TO HAPPEN WITH THE ICONIC TAXI, NOT JUST ANY BLACK CAB BUT THE ORIGINAL AUSTIN FX4 TAXI SHAPE.
ANY SOUVENIR SHOP STOCKS RED LONDON BUSES OR BLACK TAXI CABS IN THIS SHAPE.
I REALLY WANT TO KEEP HER BUT TOO MANY TOYS MEAN SHE HAS TO GO.
ITS FULLY LOADED WITH ELECTRONIC WINDOWS, AIRCON, CD PLAYER, CENTRAL LOCKING.
BODY IS REALLY CLEAN AND TIDY AND QUITE SHINY
SHE ALWAYS STARTS ON THE BUTTON
PREVIOUS OWNER WAS GOING TO CONVERT HER INTO A PHOTO BOOTH TO USE AT WEDDINGS AND FESTIVALS HENCE THE REAR CABIN AREA, ALL THIS IS EASILY REMOVED IF NOT REQUIRED
MILEAGE SHOWS 94,000 BUT CANT PROVE, SPEEDO WORKS FINE BUT MILEAGE COUNTER IS TEMPERAMENTAL.
RECENT SET OF TYRES, BATTERY AND FRESH ANTIFREEZE
WHEELCHAIR RAMPS INCLUDED
