For sale is my beautiful and much loved open top London Taxi.
This is one of only seven conversions that were carried by the renowned trimer “Northumberland Leather”. Each Taxi was individually created to the customers exact requirements – and at huge expense!
Being one of only seven, these bespoke vehicles hardly ever become available on the open market – I spent literally years searching for this beauty.
It has been a very successful wedding car for us and is only being sold as we no longer do weddings and it’s such a shame to keep it tucked away, only coming out for the odd personal trip.
Everyone likes something different and retro at weddings these days – the taxi ticks all boxes and more!
The extremely spacious rear, together with the wide opening “suicide” doors, make it perfect for brides and virtually any size wedding dress!
The convertible / landaulette roof adds that touch of class and provides the perfect setting for some truly stunning photographs.
It is equally popular as a second or bridesmaid car. There are two occasional seats that fold down, resulting the Taxi being able to comfortably transport five passengers.
The conversion and interior trim are simply stunning – I’ll let the photos do the talking here!
It is a genuine ex London Taxi (still has the PCO number with it), which means that throughout its working life it was maintained to the highest of standards in order to comply with and pass the regular (and very strict) PCO testing standards… and now it’s enjoying life / retirement as a wedding vehicle!
It is fitted the most desirable, and so called “bullet proof”, Nissan 2.7 diesel engine and automatic transmission (with overdrive).
Starts, Drives and runs excellent.
Comes with a full years MOT.
Private registration number R400 WED is included in the sale.
Being a late 1997 Fairway Driver, it is literally one of the very last of this iconic design and model, that have now all but disappeared.
This is a superb opportunity to start out in the wedding car industry, or as an addition to any existing fleet.
There is great earning potential and unlike most vehicles, these are only going up in value – a solid investment and great business opportunity!
The Taxi is located in Chelmsford, Essex – viewings welcome. Alternatively, if distance is an issue, I can pass on the contact details of a very reliable (and cheap) transporter who I have used on several occasions and covers the entire UK.
Any questions, please feel free to email or call
