"I'm pleased to report that our 'Burgundy Beauty' made it back to the Haute Savoie with ease. We drove via Champagne then crossed the Jura Mountains, turning heads all the way. The torquey motor coped comfortably with the high mountain passes (8% in places), and she cruised the long sections at a graceful 55mph. We really love this motor, she's such a character and perfect for ferrying the kids and their abundant kit around."

Jim Fleet – Haute Savoie, France


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.
