Deep Sanderson 301 - where is it?

How many Deep Sanderson 301s were made? No-one seems to know for sure and all the figures that I have come across and heard about, including from its late-creator Chris Lawrence himself, can be taken with a pinch of salt, or so it seems.

But surprises still come. One was found in Mexico City two years ago (click), while a sole picture of another yellow mystery car (here) has been haunting me for some time, too. And now another sign from this car turned up in the shape of an old advert. I found it in a 1968 copy of Motorsport magazine, so very old indeed. But despite being a much darker colour it does seem to be the same car registerd 'CPP 929F'. Where is it now?

A Deep Sanderson 301 is seen for sale... in 1968. Another survivor?
