1933 Austin London Taxi landaulette
No other city can boast two great motoring icons in the way that London can. The famous London red double-decker bus and the invincible London taxi have each become renowned the world over as outstanding iconic vehicles. Ages Past is ecstatic to be able to add a genuine 1933 London taxi to its amazing collection.
Powered by the famous Austin heavy twelve-four engine, this superb vehicle has been exquisitely and meticulously restored to its full, former glory. It carries a very rare early meter (circa 1910) with an even rarer meter lamp. A copy of the original tariff is displayed in the passenger area and all the original registrations and letterings have been preserved on the vehicle.
As a bridal vehicle it is absolutely ideal. The Jones' landaulette body allows the rear part of the roof to be folded down if the weather is fine. This gives a light and airy impression to the very spacious rear compartment but passengers are well protected from the full force of the wind when travelling.
Originally licensed to carry four passengers, this London 'sherbet dab' (cab) must be the ultimate transport to get
you to the 'left in the lurch' (church) on 'lager and lime' (time), especially for two loveable Cockney 'bows and arrows'
(sparrows) who want to get 'cash and carried' (married) and become 'old pot and pan' (old man / husband)
and 'trouble and strife' (wife).
