By taxi,do you mean taxi service or might you be referring to a Towncar that was popular and used by taxi companies.
The Towncar was a production model offered by Ford, that could have been used as a taxi.
There are members on the forum that can tell you the production for Towncars better than I can.

The first taxi(s) I've found are 12 Model B in London:

Seems like there was a pre-T similar to the Landaulet which was referred to in the advertising as a "Taxi." It probably was in one of Rob's posts.

Well, I don't know Dennis, the earliest Ford taxi I ever saw was a Crown Victoria that arrived at 12:01 am.
