Footnotes

  • The TX1 replaced the ageing FX4 London Taxicab in the mid-1990s. 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.

    This London taxicab was painted gold to celebrated HM The Queen's Golden Jubilee in 2002. Only 50 were produced in 'Golden Jubilee' livery, with not all being sold prior to the event. The unsold vehicles were subsequently stripped of any Golden Jubilee connections and sold as ordinary taxis, making examples such as this one even rarer.

    The vehicle has had one registered keeper - an enthusiastic monarchist - and was used as a taxi for the first six weeks of its life, and never in wet weather, since when it has been garage stored. Presented in stunning original condition - it even retains its original tyres - the taxi is currently MoT'd and ready to use. 'LG02 UOT' has covered circa 5,290 miles, not the 52,969 recorded on one of the MoT certificates, which is a mistake made by the MoT station (see DVLA correspondence and other certificates on file). A substantial amount of Jubilee memorabilia is available to the successful purchaser via separate negotiation post sale.
