Models of Yesteryear Y-28/1; 1906 Unic Taxi

Models of Yesteryear

Box notes: "In October 1906, a town carriage competition was held in London. Among the taxis exhibited was a Unic Motorcab made by Richard-Brasier of Paris. It excelled above the competition as the best for bodywork, smooth braking and gear change, easy access and comfort for passengers, and smooth running. Such was its achievement that the Unic served the London Cab Trade for 25 years. The cost to buy the chassis in 1907 was 1,300."

 

This taxi is a more finely modelled item than many Models of Yesteryear products, it really displays very well indeed. It was made in dark red, dark blue and white none of which gets much of a premium, the white version being slightly harder to find and worth marginally more as a result.
