Current Ex London Taxis Cabs For Sale

Fantastic Ex-London Taxi For Sale – For advertising, for the family, for work!

Due to the 15 year rule in London the current taxis becoming available are now the LTI TX2 taxi. The LTI TX2 has a handful of differences from its predecessor the LTI TX1. The main difference is a change of engine from Nissan 2.7 to the intercooled 2.4 Ford Duratorq engine which is usually found in the Ford Transit van. Some people may mourn the passing of the old Nissan engine but the current Ford engine is much cleaner being EURO 3 compliant.

This taxi is in fantastic condition for its age. It has great bodywork and a great interior. The taxi will be fully serviced and will be sold with a 12 month MOT. You can also choose between brand nerw chrome or silver hubcaps.

At approximately 2 tonnes to of mostly steel, these are among the safest vehicles on the road; they even have crash bars in the doors. Additionally, the passenger bench seat has a built-in toddler seat (completely hidden when not used). And with large amounts of space in the front and rear, there’s room for plenty of boxes, shopping bags, bikes, and almost anything else you can imagine – while still holding 5 passengers in the rear!

What people are saying about Elite Taxis....

A Fairway Driver taxi re-painted in white for use by Westwood Property Services in Kent.

"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."

Dirk Garos – Holland

"Christophe is absolutely delighted with his taxi and thinks that your after sales service is brilliant - and you can quote him on that."

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.
