Ah well spotted Jonathan. Reading the ebay owners blurb it would appear there are 5 survivors!  This one not being one of them, the description reveals its a mock up using some period parts, Morris minor bits and bobs but a real Blackburn vee twin motor. Nice project.

For some reason, I didnt bother checking the advert, I thought it would have run out by then!

Doesnt seem a crazy price, since the motor is an original, and there is a new body, which would cost quite a bit! (even if no concave curves)
