Taxi Jubilee – Fifty Years of the Austin FX4 London Taxi

Taxi Jubilee cover image
Bill Munro

For over fifty years, the FX4 was THE London black cab. It was as familiar a sight in Britain’s capital city as Buckingham Palace and the changing of the guard. When it was on the drawing board, the plan was to make it for just ten years, but events, in the form of the troubled times of the British motor industry got in the way and it was not until 1997 that the makers, London Taxis International were able to introduce a new model, the TX1. This richly illustrated book tells the story of the FX4 over those five decades.

Features include

  • Design and development
  • Model history
  • Details of some of the special models built on the FX4 chassis
  • Full technical specifications and production figures
