Yes, it's this one which was advertised by KGF Classic Cars in 2016:

It looked like a very nice motor, although now the number plate has been revealed, I can see the MOT history reports significant structural corrosion issues in the past, as referred to on the earlier thread. The last MOT ran out in April 2018 and the car is currently on SORN.

I’m surprised at the rust issue as the car is hardly driven if you look at the mileage between MOTs, must of been left in a damp garage?
