Lti Fairway Carbodies FX4 Black London Taxi Cab - 12 month MOT for sale
Listed on behalf of my friend. who has no Ebay. this is a unique vehicle with lots of character. Fun to drive and gets plenty of looks anywhere outside of London! Would make an unusual wedding car or a practical people carrier for the school run. with plentiful seating and very easy to park and manoeuvre (these are famous for their amazing turning circle). Or perfect for the designated driver in the pub! Might even be possible to recommission it and put it back into service as a taxi. but I have no idea what would be involved with that.
This cab has the rare front passenger seat. meaning it seats seven including driver. It also features electric front windows. automatic door locks . dual-zone heating and power steering. It recently had a new headlining in the front half of the interior and a new floor in the back.
It's also recently had a new bonnet. full respray (about a year ago). nbsp;and the original Nissan engine was replaced after a major problem with the old one. MOT until Jan 2015.
Being a taxi. it is very easy to drive and park. with an automatic gearbox with switchable overdrive and the famous tight turning circle (can do a U-turn in the middle of the street). Also it's easy to keep clean and has lots of space for passengers and luggage and good disabled access. with a swing-out seat for the less agile. nbsp;or space for a wheelchair.
Bad points - one wheel trim is cracked (see photo). there is a slight crack in the plastic trim around the gear selector. the orange "taxi" light on the roof does not illuminate as it was disconnected when the vehicle was decommissioned. but could easily be reconnected. There is a bit of a grinding noise when the steering is on full lock to the left but this doesn't affect normal driving. The main odometer in the speedometer works fine but the resettable trip meter seems not to work.
The stickers on the front can easily be removed with a hairdryer if not wanted. The vehicle comes with a log book. a repair manual on CD and the original owner's manual.
As mentioned above. I am listing this for a friend. Any questions etc should be sent to Jenny at jenny666barnish@gmail. com. Please note that the vehicle is sold as seen. neither of us are experts but we have described the vehicle as truthfully as we can. Any inspection is welcome and viewing is recommended before bidding. Please contact the email address above to arrange. Remember that you bid to buy. not to look!
The car is located just off Junction 10 of the M11 near Cambridge. Cash on collection please.
Thanks for looking. good luck!
