I believe that one has been purchased by John Travolta after the two SPs were scrapped. He was in Sydney a few weeks ago and visited the QANTAS Jet Base with rumours saying that he was interested in one of the 238Bs.

It was posted on aus.aviation that today (02 May)
QFA6019 a B747-200 was tracked from HNL to MZJ, otherwise known as Pinal Airpark, Marana, Arizona.
Unfortunately, I don't know which one it was; but it certainly won't be going to the QF museum at Longreach, nor is it likely to be joining Mr Travolta's fleet - once an a/c lands at Pinal Park it rarely takes off again.
It has joined sister 747s there; SP VH-EAB, reportedly engineless, undercarriageless and interiorless; and SP VH-EAA, engineless and radomeless, but otherwise intact for the moment.
