Hackney Carriage: 1967 Austin FX4 Taxi


The London Black cab is a dying thing. The strange looking hacks zipping through tight streets are as much a symbol of London as the Tower Bridge or Big Ben…and certainly more iconic than the big Ferris wheel of blimps that blights the view of the Thames these days. Regardless, the crunch of low cost alternatives like Uber/Lyft, autonomous driving, pollution, and the fact that black cabs are based on a chassis older than a ’57 Chevy means that there is an asteroid with their name on it headed toward London now.
