2006 London Taxi Int. TX4 Silver

One private owner from new until Feb 2021, used to carry the family around central London, 'Silver' spec; just 101,000 miles

Dating from October 2006 this earlyTX4 model has spent its life ferrying its private owner and family in and out of central London since purchase until February this year.  As a Taxi, it could go anywhere in London without the congestion charge, utilise taxi and bus lanes, slipping in and out of town with consumate ease and absolute discretion.

Able to carry 5 passengers plus driver and shopping/baggage with ease and in air conditioned comfort, it was the perfect companion and vehicle for its purpose.  As a result, all 101,000 miles over its 14 years of regular use have been in private hands, unlike many of its Hackney Carriage siblings who regularly clock over 400,000 miles of hard use.

Powered here, as with all UK models by the 101bhp 2.5-litre VM DOHC diesel motor driven through Chrysler's 5-speed automatic box it offers enough oomph to pop into gaps in the traffic while returning a decent mpg.

The TX4 appears in good order with but a few signs of city life to the body, the roof mounted Taxi sign still affixed although obviously no meter is installed.  In the back we find the rear bench seat, two fold away bulkhead seats and a detachable ramp for added ease of access with the stubby key present (pictured). 

The history file includes the V5C showing one owner from new until February 2021, old V5, MOT running until November 2021 showing 6 minor advisories one of which has been attended to with fitment of new front tyres and a stack of old Taxi insurance docs that fit nearly into the plastic window in the driver area required for a Taxi use.

An unusual opportunity presents itself, particularly if you regularly visit a large city where discretion and ease of entry are important. There are plently of options and at such little money its very appealing.
