1995 FAIRWAY DRIVER BLACK CAB WEDDING LIMO
Highly customised, wedding-ready, black taxi for sale.

THE STORY BEHIND THE CAR
This 1995 Fairway taxi was manufactured as a factory standard, RHD vehicle. At some point in its lifetime, it made its way to Poland, where it was remodeled into a luxury, LHD wedding taxi.

I, the owner, live in Southern California, where I have a niche London Taxi wedding limo business. Four years ago, when I found this vehicle for sale in Poland, I had to have it. It was (and still is) a stunning car, with all customisation already done. It needed nothing else.

Before I purchased it, one of the best experts from London Taxi Exports/London Taxi Group (LTE/LTG) performed an independent and thorough inspection of the car. His findings were that the conversion from RHD to LHD had been quite good and that the vehicle was in nice condition for its age. The complete report is below and available by PDF upon request.

I bought the taxi at the end of 2016. However, because of the US “25-year rule,” it was not legally importable into the country until now (2020). Thus, it has been stored in a UK friend’s garage on SORN ever since the purchase was completed. He has been attending to it, including starting the engine and running it from time to time to move the fluids around.

Since buying it, I have acquired other vehicles and now have enough to adequately support the business – thus the difficult but practical decision to sell it.

WORK DONE
In the past couple of years, a few repairs have been done to the car:
• Swapped out broken speedometer cable
• Replaced temperamental starter motor
• Replaced steering box and arm, and re-fitted all drag links and tracking arms

To prepare it for sale, my friend recently took the car for MOT, which regrettably it did not pass (certificate with details available as a PDF on request, but also available via the DVLA website) owing to a small handful of minor issues requiring attention:
• Some brake work required, including disc and pad replacement
• Re-installation of steering lock stops
• Proper seat belt attachment and securing of driver seat to floor
• Under-performing windscreen wipers
• LHD head lamps would need replacement if the vehicle were to be used on RHD roads
