The car is on eBay here - and it comes complete with old scripts from the show, a signed photo of the cast and beer mats from the Rovers Return.
There's no denying the car for sale has the same registration plate as the one used in Coronation Street, and pictured above. However, the car used in Corrie was smashed up in a car crash on screen in New Year 2002. I'm guessing a stunt car was used in the smash and it could be the original red taxi that's been found in a barn and is now up for sale on the auction site.
The car crash action began when Les, devastated when Janice walked out on him for his best friend Dennis, tried to kill himself inside his taxi. But as exhaust fumes poured into the car, his rambling final words were heard over his radio back in Coronation Street and Dennis Stringer set off across town to find him.
You can watch the car in action and see the crash scene we mention above, via the wonders of YouTube:
