TFHISTORY
  • The Austin Motor Co. built their first purpose built taxi in 1929, being quite late into the taxicab scene. It was not however until April 1930 that the design was modified to meet the stringent regulations for London use, laid down by Scotland Yard's Conditions of Fitness. Part of those requirements involved a tight turning circle which the early cars did not have. Austin's well tried 12/4 chassis and engine were used as the basis for the new cab. In 1934 the adoption of a worm drive rear axle enabled a lower body to be fitted, whilst still keeping a flat floor in the passenger compartment. These coachbuilt, high specification taxis were expensive to produce and consequently most enjoyed high levels of maintenance and long stints in service. Coachbuilders Strachan and Jones were the two favourite coachbuilders and Mann & Overton were the supplying dealers for the London area . A photocopy of their sales ledger records the supply of this car, wfurniture in the rear. Finished in traditional blue over
