Number 619

This is an accurate reproduction of the FX4 London "Black Cab" produced by Austin, Carbodies and London Taxis International between 1958 and 1997. Rather bizarrely for such a famous vehicle, Hot Wheels gave it neither an authentically sober black, green or maroon paint job nor a wacky pink or turquoise advertising wrap (as often seen in London these days) but a livery based on New York's famous yellow cabs, complete with checks.

The London Taxi has come out in the following 1/64 scale versions:

Col # Year Series Color / Tampo Base Color Window Color Interior Color Wheel Type Toy # Country Notes / Variations Photo
16020 1996 FAO Schwarz Gold Series III Set Black G5SP
619 1997 1997 Hot Wheels #619 Yellow Unfinished Metal Clear Black 5SP 95510 China London.taxi
