Cockney Cab

The Hot Wheels Cockney Cab is inspired by a hackney carriage which is also known as a London taxi. The taxi has been converted into a hot rod that features a massive engine and lacks a left side door.

The die-cast car was a 1971 release that was designed by Howard Rees. It can be found in quite a few Spectraflame colors and its redline wheels are capped. A Union Jack sticker with “Cockney Cab” decorates the back.

Production was in the U.S. and Hong Kong. A U.S. car has clear windows, a black interior, and “U.S.A.” on the base. A Hong Kong car has blue windows, a brown interior, and “Hong Kong” on the base.

Included with the vehicle was a collector’s button that can be plastic or metal with a smooth tab. Both buttons have a red Cockney Cab on a yellow background.
