Blue Peter Wood & Pickett Mini Margrave - a survivor?

This lovely little video was uploaded by the BBC archive earlier this week. It's a clip from 'Blue Peter' and shows a 1975 Wood & Pickett Mini in all its glory. I wondered if the car survived and Ole O Pedersen got back to that question with some pictures of a W&P Mini that was seen for sale several years ago, probably in 2010. It certainly looks to be the same car to me. Anyone knows of its current whereabouts?

Wood & Pickett Mini Margrave then and now (well, almost). Where is it now?

Interior certainly looks similar, just take a look at the bottom right dash switches

Car is worse for fear, or was when offered for sale some years ago
