Spot-On 155 Austin Taxi FX 4. Issued 1960-61 1st version.

Description.
Ultra rare and considered the 'Holy Grail' for Spot-On collectors, this early version in burgundy with a lemon interior and number plates 'PQT 155'. The base is an olive grey colour.

Condition. Near Mint.
Superb condition and the best example I have ever seen (not that I have seen more than three) and in my own collection for a very long time. Apart from a little high edge box rubbing there are three tiny nicks around the roof. The suspension works well and the wheels, tyres and base all very nice. Nice to see complete number plates both ends.

Box. Excellent Plus.
The box is complete with all flaps and has the distinctive red spot on the descriptive end.  There are no repairs but one main end flap end tab may benefit from some tape support. The shape and structure is very good.

Summary.
So hard to find in any condition this will certainly be one of the best examples around.
For the connoisseur collector and one with deep pockets. A superb presentation piece and will become the pride of any collection.
