Of historical interest, one of the very last Fairway taxis ever made. Have been informed that the production run of this iconic world renowned vehicle rolled of the production line on October 1st 1997. It's home the head office of the London Taxi Company. My own taxi was registered on the 8th of October 1997 so very rear.
Own and driven by myself as an on road restoration project.
Fitted with the famous bullet proof 2.7 Nissan diesel engine.
To date I have spent much money and replaced repaired a lot, see below for details:
Rear inner wheel arches professionally repaired.
Part replacement boot.
Replacement rear valance.
Restored rear wings/ mud guards.
Replacement drivers floor.
Restored drivers side bulk head.
Replacement drivers inner wing.
Replacement bonnet. (requires colour change as currently dark metallic grey).
Replacement windscreen motor and drive boxes.
Millage 453k, however is a fantastic starter in all weather conditions, pulls away nicely with sweet gear change (working overdrive).
Nice economical drive both in town and motorway.
Cruise's at 70 mph, can go faster if required.
Repair or replace doors. However the cab comes with a complete set of replacement doors, some may require light work before fitting. one of which is an original old stock which is very hard to find. Other small areas of body work required.
Interior is in good condition for its age and the use it's had.
Drivers seat has been replaced with one from a Range Rover, finished in black leather, no rips or tears and is very comfortable. The area which has had the colour rubbed away could be easily redyed then it would be perfect. I also have the Ranger Rover accompanying front passenger seat should you want to fit it.
Just completed 100,000 mile full service by a long standing Taxi specialist current MOT till 23.5.19 with no reason to suspect problems ahead of renewing.
