1941 Porterfield for sale on Barnstormers.  Anyone know  more about it ?

Plane for Sale on Main Page

I was looking at the planes for sale on the Main page and noted a blue PC for sale.  I can find no date on the ad except an annual of 2009 so I assume it is at least 6 years old.  (If this is wrong, let me know.) I can find no N number so my question is what happened to the plane, who bought it  or (really a long shot) is it still for sale?
