A 1997 Classic Carbodies London Fairway Driver Taxi Cab 
Retired from London service following the Mayors 15 year age restriction on licensed vehicles in London.  
This vehicle is in very nice original condition and will make a very nice collectors piece for future preservation.  
It was first registered on the 8th October 1997 as a PCO licensed Hackney Carriage vehicle.  
The very last Fairway Driver left the production line in Coventry on the 1st October 1997 so this makes this particular vehicle one of the very last ones registered.  Note: The very final Fairway made. with registration mark R1 PFX (i. e. RIP FX). was built on 1 October 1997 and was presented to the National Motor Museum at Beaulieu. [2]
The Fairway was replaced by the TX1 which had the same Nissan Diesel engine and gearbox fitted renowned in the trade for being "Bulletproof" and extremely reliable. Its considered one of the best engines ever produced.  
The inside of the vehicle has the latest grey/red upholstery and still retains the original adverts on the rear flip seats. Headlining and carpets are excellent throughout.  
The bodywork is very good and consistent with its prior use as a licensed London taxi. There is some minor bubbling evident but is overall very solid. The underside of the chasis has been galvanised as required by annual Public carriage office inspections. Most recently it has only been used for filming and wedding work.
The taxi retains the original LTI meter in the front and orange 'For Hire' light which illuminates.  
Front drivers air-conditioning unit 
CD stereo system 
Wheelchair facilities and step in boot

Fully serviced 
MOT 11/10/13 - 438. 58 miles09/10/14 - 442. 51 miles09/10/15 - 440. 36 miles 
This is a really lovely vehicle and is only being sold due to a sudden change in personal circumstances.  
It can be viewed in Winchmore Hill. N21 10 mins from junction 24 of M25 
Early viewing recommended.  
Would make a lovely wedding vehicle. promotional use or just for future preservation.
