Default BBC LS3/5 and B110

I have one of these - BBC LS3/5/113 Loudspeaker O.B. - but the bass driver's cone is seized completely. No movement (or sound) whatever. I have had this rescued for ages now - kept dry and frost free. The rest of it is in good condition and the tweeter works fine.
I'm not even sure it is a KEF B110 as there is no marking on the driver apart from 3 sticky labels that say '14 jun 1971', '6362' and 'F 1171'
Has any one out there had any experience with these - seized up or otherwise?
