FX4 Black Cab Enthusiasts' Manual - Front Cover

Front Cover

Front Cover


From the origins of the Hackney carriage, the author follows the evolution of the taxi through early 20th century designs by William Beardmore of Glasgow to the dominance of later vehicles commissioned from Austin by Mann and Overton in 1929. Later designs follow a distinct lineage and despite continual improvement of the design over the years, coupled with a succession of more refined and cleaner diesel engines, the black cab remains an enduring icon of Britain's transport heritage. Part of a new range of Enthusiast Manuals from Haynes, this book traces the history and development of the ubiquitous Austin FX4 London Taxi, built between 1958 and 1997.

● The history of the Austin FX4 presented in the style of a Haynes Manual.
● Featuring archive photographs, drawings and plenty of technical detail.
● Expert views from dealers, owners and mechanics covering buying, using and maintaining an FX4 today.
● All FX4s will be removed from service in London by the end of 2012, marking the end of 54 years' continuous service.
