    1986 White London Sterling Limousine with Gray Interior. Estimated 100 produced, this was number 68 production according to the plaque in the back seat. Only 16,374 original miles! Passed MA inspection in 2005. Minibar cabinet in backseat. Needs some body work (sand off rust and paint) and some minor restoration to the interior. Purchased a few years back with big plans to restore it but haven't gotten around to it and have moved on.

    "London Coach was formed in May, 1984 to fill the need for purpose built cabs left by the 1982 decision by Checker Motors (USA) to discontinue cab production. EPA prototype testing was completed in August, 1985. These specialty vehicles were assembled in the US, using glider kits provided by Carbodies and fitted with 2.3 litre Ford engines and transmissions. Two models were available: The London Taxi and the London Sterling. The Sterling was a limousine version of the taxi. Both were available with or without air conditioning. Production for 1985-1986 was reported as 75 to the NHTSA. With the introduction of the Rover Sterling by ARCONA in 1987, London Coach was pressured to discontinue use of the Sterling name. Total production is estimated at 80-100"

    Looking to sell or trade for a Tesla. I have no idea what to price this thing at - some have sold for upwards of $150k and others have sold for closer to retail price in 1986 ($26k). If you would like to make an offer, feel free to message me.
