Clockwork Austin London Taxi from METTOY

Hark back to the halcyon days of postwar toy manufacturing with this perfect replica of a London Taxi, produced by toy manufacturer METTOY from original tinplate.

METTOY first launched a range of die cast models in 1956, creating the Corgi brand of small, detailed vehicles. Now they have created a new generation of metal toys, using the same traditional manufacturing techniques to produce this clockwork drive Austin FX 4 taxi which comes with front wheel steering, key winder and detailed interior.

The model is a limited edition, measuring 193mm in length.

It costs £60 from Paul Smith here.
