Scarce late issue with spun wheels and driver.

Superb example from the USA ‘Carolina’ collection.

Description.
Austin Taxi, in black gloss paintwork with yellow interior and scarce issue with driver at the wheel. Also with late silver shaped spun wheels normally the silver flat wheels. Boxed, in the yellow and blue picture box.

Condition. Very, near mint.
Just one scrape on roof near roof sign and a couple of tiny rubs on front bumper if you look carefully otherwise mint. It has a day one lustre. It’s so nice to see this scarce late variant and in such nice condition.

Box. Near mint.
A very nice box with no real fault just lost a little sharpness. Biro pricing one end.

Summary.
A very nice late scarce variant of the UK’s iconic 60’s style Taxi.
