What insurer would cover a London black cab for private use?

I am looking at buying an ex London black cab as my new daily runner. Most insurance companies won't insure them because they say it's too old or it's not a usual car. Who should I speak to about insuring one at a decent price? Aviva quoted me over £5000 for a fully comp policy.
