1997 P531SYF LTI Carbodies FX4 Fariway Driver Taxi

One of the final FX4s built; fully restored in 2017; stunning condition

The vehicle offered for sale is one of the most sought after Fairway Driver models built from the final batch of cars in April 1997, only six months before the end of production.

This vehicle was fully restored in 2017 with a long list of refurbishment work completed. The front inner wheel arches and outer wings were all replaced along with the inner flitch panels. All mechanicals, suspension and brakes were also mechanically overhauled. Finally the vehicle had a full body respray in stunning red paintwork. The interior is totally original and in superb condition. The vehicle has travelled less than 30 miles since this restoration and flew through an MOT with no advisories in January 2020.

Fitted with the lazy, low revving 2.7 Nissan diesel engine and Automatic transmission, it has oposed seats and that famous tight turning circle which makes it a doddle to manoeuvre in town.

The history of this superb example indicates that it must have retired from official duties as a Licensed vehicle a long time ago, its validated VOSA history check records show it has only covered 26,425 miles since 2006. This is a rare opportunity to aquire such a superb Fairway Taxi! We have not seen a better one and we have driven around the site, rather too much some might say as it is huge fun and really does drive very nicely indeed.
