At the time of the sale the buyer was said to be local with an interest in the period and intended to convert them for residential use.
The huts are now up for sale again through estate agents Lacy, Scott and Knight billed as a "rare and exciting opportunity to create a unique dwelling" but with a guide price of £135,000.
Some 300 huts were built to accommodate up to 2,000 airmen at the RAF Fersfield, used during the Second World War for highly secret operations, including the final mission of Lieutenant Joseph P Kennedy Jr, the brother of American president John F Kennedy.
