1937 Austin 12/4 Low loader London Taxi Cab
Registration number: DYH 310
Chassis Number: 81199
Engine Number: 79366

Austin built their first purpose built London taxi in 1930 and quickly dominated the market. Based on the reliable Twelve-Four many were still in service until the 1960's when wear finally overtook them. As with many commercial vehicles, survivors are rare due to the harsh conditions they endured and taxis in particular covered Herculean mileages.

This most outstanding example is the actual vehicle which featured in the all-time classic film Carry On Cabby, starring Sid James, Charles Hawtree and Hattie Jacques and wearing the registration PEG 1 in that film.

Now fully restored and bearing its original road-going registration number DYH 310, the landaulette coachwork is traditionally finished in Oxford Blue and black and coachlined in red. The interior trim is correctly finished in blue leather and externally it is complete with all correct period fittings, roof rack, Hire sign, fully operational 3d meter and Hackney plates.

Prior to its starring role, the cab was purchased new and owned for most of its life by the London General Cab Company and for many years museum stored. Recently converted to run on unleaded fuel, it is currently sorn and presents a rare opportunity to acquire a superbly restored example with a wonderful provenance.
