Unique Fairway Driver Black Taxi For Sale

I am advertising this taxi for it’s current owner here are a few words from him:

“I am looking to sell my P-reg Fairway Driver. Sadly.
I am starting a new business and looking at raising some capitol for this project. I’m not happy but it’s for the greater good. 🙁

It was the one off Christian Dior taxi for London fashion week – it has a stunning full top quality Dior leather interior.

In addition to the car – see images attached.

I have lots and lots of collectable printed material relating to Fairway Drivers, in actual fact there isn’t much I don’t have.

2 folders full, clearly the person who buys my car will love taxi’s, this material has been my obsession. When I fractured my skull last year it was therapeutic finding and collating as much as possible.

I’d like to think you would want it in your collection and be it’s new custodian.

I have all service records and receipt’s including major ones like:

£3000+ rust proofing and welding

£1000 stainless steel custom made exhaust

£1000 stereo, classy stealthy rear parcel shelf custom speaker install and bumper mounted reversing sensors..

4 new Michelin tyres fitted in May.

I have Wolfelec fitted rear electric windows – amazing job and great to meet that small team.

Also I will include around 25 model Fairway and FX4 cars if desired.”

London Taxi For Sale – TX1, Midnight Blue – 2000 – Fair Condition

Due to the fact that there are almost no Fairway Driver taxis around anymore the taxis we are currently selling are LTI TX1 taxis. These taxis are coming off of the road in London due to rules limiting the age of London taxis. At present the cabs are coming off the road as they pass 15 years old.

This particular TX1 taxi is from 2000 and is a V registration it is midnight blue in colour. Like the classic Fairway Driver taxis these TX1 taxis still have the bullet-proof Nissan engine and automatic gearbox. It has 220,000 miles on the clock which is nothing for these cabs.

The bodywork on this cab is not the best. It has a dodgy door and a dodgy rear wheel arch and the lacquer is coming off the roof (see photo) and the rest of the paint is a bit flat but looks like it would come up with a good polish. However the inside is mint for it’s age with great front and rear seats. The carpets are in good order as is the headlining.

Mechanically the cab is great it drives very smoothly and the engine is great as is the gearbox with no lag when it is cold like some of this age.

The taxi is in full working order and comes with a 12 Month MOT. I Have fitted a new battery costing £100.

These ex-working vehicles have many years of life left in them whether the taxi is used as a private vehicle, for wedding work or as an advertising vehicle.

This cab can be delivered anywhere in the UK or Europe for around £1.20 per mile. Please ask for details.

What people are saying about Elite Taxis....

"You are mad! This is what I heard when I announced that I wanted to buy an old London Taxi for marketing purposes. The result however was a huge success!...... The London taxi we bought from Dave is still running fine. At one time we needed some small spare parts and these were immediately supplied in 2 days by mail. It gives you a good feeling that our taxi can rely on good service and personal touch from Dave and his team."

"I just wanted to send a belated email thanking the 'dream team' for doing such an awesome job on 'Betsie' the cab, they have the patience of a saint and I have an abundance of confidence that they can solve ANY problem which is thrown at them. Would not go anywhere else. Also thank you for your generosity with the battery, sticker, teas and lunch, much appreciated Dave!"

Jonathan Bletsoe, Germany

"Our taxi is going really well and proving to be a big hit in the area. Everyone comments on what good nick she is in and how clean we keep her! Aside from our everyday taxiing work, we have 4 prom bookings this week alone! Thanks Elite Taxis for your support and terrific customer service!"

FAQs

In short the answer yes if the taxi is over 25 years old and no. Most of the taxis that we source do not comply with the United States ‘Department of Transportation’ rules & regulations regarding frontal impact zones and emissions. There are of course exceptions. If the taxi is over 25 years old then it can be registered in the USA however in the 9 years I have been dealing in these vehicles I have only traded 2 such taxis!! You might come across taxis that appear to be older than 25 years old but beware because most are in fact a lot newer and have been dressed up to look older.
Before you buy an ex-London cab you should bear in mind one thing – the vehicle that you are buying has been driven for around 50 and 150 miles every day for the majority of it’s working life. It will also be between 10 and 15 years old so you can do the maths for yourself – it will have covered ‘starship’ mileage. However, on a positive note the owner driver who owned it will also have expected to get into the taxi every morning and go to work – so it will most likely have been very well maintained during it’s working life.
The LTI TX1 taxi is now the standard shape London taxi it took over from the LTI Fairway Driver which was discontinued in 1997. It still has the fantastic 2.7 Nissan diesel engine coupled with a 3 speed auto gearbox with overdrive. Drum brakes front and rear, power steering, electric mirrors and central locking. It has a better build quality than the Fairway and consequntly has less water leaks from the body and a better ride quality. We are increasingly selling Ex-London TX2 taxis. They have the same body shape and suspension as the TX1 but with a different engine. The new engine is a 2.4 Ford Duratorq engine as found in Ford Transit vans.
Yes, of course. Although this might add another £1,200 or more to the price. It may be cheaper for you to get this done yourself.
Around every 6000 miles. A basic service should cost around £55.00.
They should be very reliable if you are only using your taxi as a run around. Don’t forget these taxis are used to driving 100 plus miles a day around the streets of London.
