Is Type 65 AYU 517 still around?

Bob Drewitt bought the car, AYU 517, from a D.J.Hunt in late 1966 for £75; sold in 1968 to Bernard Humphrey of Rochford, Essex who later sold it on with another Nippy as spares. The last known colour was cream with brown wings. He remembers the car as a Type 65 and would be surprised if it was broken up as they were quite sort after even then as well as it being in good condition.

He went to Beaulieu A7 rally, probably in 1967 after painting it white. It had a 4 spoke wheel. The red picture with driver was taken at the Brighton Run in November ’66. Berni Humphrey confirms it was a 65 and thought it was a 1933; alloy body and boot lid and steel bonnet. Could it still be around?
