£40,250 with auction fees......(featured on ITV News at 6pm)

Confirmed by British Motor Heritage to be the eighth of its type, it went under the hammer at Bonhams' sale at the RAF Museum in Hendon with an upper estimate of £15,000.

Thing is if it gets restored it loses its niche I suppose... Not sure whether it'd be possible to preserve it like that or not mind...
