Footnotes

  • Trading as 'The London Taxi Company', LTI (London Taxis International) manufactures and sells London's famous back taxicabs. For many years the classic London 'black cab' was the Austin FX3, introduced in 1948 and built by Carbodies of Coventry, which in 1958/59 was superseded by the Austin FX4. Manganese Bronze Holdings took over Carbodies in 1973 and later reorganised the taxi-making part of its business as LTI. By the mid-1990s the ageing FX4's replacement was long overdue and a new design - the TX1 - was submitted to London 'cabbies' for their approval. As well as an improved interior, the TX1 incorporated several design cues linking it with its much-loved predecessors and was accepted as continuing the marque's traditions. In 2002 it was replaced by the TXII, which used the 2.4-litre Ford Duratorq diesel engine as found in various 'Blue Oval' products and the Land Rover Defender.

    This unique, gold-painted London taxicab was specially commissioned for the Patrick Collection to celebrated HM the Queen's Golden Jubilee in 2002. Costing £32,000, the cab was handed over in August '02 to Alexander Patrick by Dave Simpson of LTI dealer Mann & Overton of Birmingham. Mr Patrick said: 'We feel that this is a great way to record the Queen's Jubilee, while maintaining a car which will remind people of a very special event this year.'

    Since its acquisition by the Patrick Collection, the taxicab has been used only infrequently, covering a mere 941 miles, and is described as in excellent 'as new' condition throughout. Recently issued with a new MoT, the vehicle is offered with assorted correspondence, sales brochure and user guide, Swansea V5 document and a quantity of old MoTs.
