reported as for sale in an auction in France over the summer  along with the claim that it had been restored by Nigel Withers of Limousine 4x4 (I expect this was typical french auction garbling - they also claimed it was the second oldest registered ?)
Anyone know who bought it ?

Actually re-reading the report I realise this was possible only on display and not actually in the auction itself sorry for any confusion
