Last heard of in 1938 so may still be hidden somewhere, or have been destroyed in the war.

#B33CW is still around, although "slightly" modified!
It's been in the Turin Automobile museum since being donated in 1958.

Correspondence with boybentley has let us to believe that this is actually more likely to be B64CF, under guarantee by October 1948, which ties in with being shown on the 1948 Paris Salon. It was delivered to Nouveautes Industrielles SA in Switzerland, a regular RR and B customer. Its whereabouts are unknown.

B139BH in the meanwhile was apparently either never built, or rebodied by Graber a year later and currently on the auction market.
