The Cockney Cab is a third wave car, issued in 1973 using the US casting dated 1970. It differs from the normal release in the paint colors, white interior

The Cockney Cab was one of the first few castings to surface but quickly became one of the most common, not that any CIPSA is common. However, many are in
poor condition. The bumper tips are fragile and are broken off on many examples of the casting.
