help wanted with this TAXI-sign! condensed & low waisted

Sorry about the crappy image quality but I figured this wouldn't be too tough a nut to crack anyway (though too tough for me..). Any help appreciated!

Thanks in advance!

I think you mean low waisted, the x-height is something different

In this case, someone probably just switched the plastic letter unwittingly

thanks a bunch, and thanks for a new term.

however I'm not looking for the exact typeface here, anything similar is good enough!

Any Condensed gothic will tend to have a relatively low-waisted A (in order to keep the counter visible).
It is also a feature of some art deco typefaces (but they most likely will have a pointed A).
Here are some possibilities, none of which has such a low-waisted A:
