Hi
My first thoughts are, inverted in line engine, must be one of the DH Gypsy powered family, but the nose is too rounded for the DH aircraft such as Leopard and Puss Moths, and the larger intake is on the left looking at it while DH's tend to be on the right
The balanced fin is also DHish

Is the Reg C-?GZV or is it G-?GZV.

Some people who may know it straight away are the owners and followers of
http://1000aircraftphotos.com/ Try Johan initially.

don't be misled by the 1000 they are currently up to 12,850.
