FX4 Black Cab 1958 - 1997 (Austin FX4, FL2; Carbodies FX4, FL2, FX4R, FX4S-Plus, Fairway, Fairway Driver)
An insight into the history and development of the famous London taxi.
It's hard to think of a more instantly recognisable motor vehicle than the FX4 Black Cab. Synonymous with London for more than half a century, the FX4 first appeared on our streets in 1958 and has served London and many other cities and towns in the UK ever since.
A substantial section of this book is dedicated to the anatomy of the FX4 and the author, Bill Munro, also traces the origins of the Hackney carriage and the evolution of the taxi through to the early 20th century.
This Haynes Enthusiasts' Manual celebrates the history, devlopment and influence of the ubiquitous FX4, built between 1958 and 1997.
