Up for auction is a 1935 Austin 12/4 London Taxi Low Loader. This Taxi was built by the Austin London Taxicab Cop. The Austin London taxicab used a modified Austin Healy Twelve-Four chassis. Clothed with new Body designed by London's largest Taxicab retailer and dealer Mann & Overton of London Coachbuilder. This particular Taxi was used to transport patrons from the Oxford Hotel in Denver Colorado. back and forth to the train station. The body is original with great patina and has the Oxford Hotel in gold paint on the doors & trunk. Body only has a couple of very small dents other that that it is very sound. (Please look at pictures closely) The only rust at all is one spot in the trunk under the spare tire well about 6" round. The rest of the body has no rust other than where some paint has worn off on the top of the trunk. nbsp;and that is just on the surface. The interior is excellent. as is the original wood. and all shows well for its age. (The interior could have been redone some time in the past. ) The rear interior compartment has two jump seats and a rear lounge where you sit in comfort in it's blue upholstery. trimmed in real wood. (looks cool) That compartment's convertible bonnet folds down for nice weather and is in good condition. but the rear window has darkened with age. (It's the original back window and is plastic. ) A pass through glass window opens between the front and rear compartments. also the windshield opens for fresh air. The front compartment is for the driver and it has it's working Bell Punch (London Model) Taximeter. (This Taxi drives on the right side. ) The original 4 cylinder engine has been replaced some time ago with a Buick Nail Head that runs strong and starts easy. It has the Buick automatic transmission coupled to the original rear end. The brakes are the originals but work well. Tires are new wide whites and it has a new battery. This Taxi would be great for the coolest Street Rod or Hot Rod ever. ( It would turn heads) You could advertising a business with it. use it for weddings. Graduations or what ever????? This London Taxi is mostly original and is showing some age. but it is in good condition for its age. (Remember it' a 1935 Austin!) I'm listing this London Taxi for a friend and will take all questions to him. Buyer is responsible for shipping and all shipping costs. We will help with loading on our end and in anyway we can.
