The “black cab” is a true icon the UK; the basic design has not changed in 70 years! This model represents a 1948-1959 Austin FX4.
Assembly of the classic Austin cab begins with the one-piece chassis. This kit was motorized at one time, as there is a box for a AA battery, and a hole for an on/off switch. The front spindles have great engraved detail on the back sides, and there are drum brakes.
