Ted told me the project is now in the works at his sheet metal shop and shouldn't be long.  
The brand new VST 5E3X2 chassis has to be punched (5 octal sockets instead of 3) and chrome plated.  
If so inclined, MOJO has the 5E3X2 2x12" cabinet drawing laid out and is ready to run a batch as soon as the chassis are ready.

Book Of The Day The Ultimate Tone, Volume III by Kevin O'Connor
Have you ever wondered if there is a better way to build a Bassman, Champ, Plexi, an 800, AC-30, Bulldog or Portaflex? Or you wanted to build an SVT with off-the-shelf parts? How about a master-volume amp that doesn’t change tone with the master setting? Everything you need to know is right here, including: proper grounding techniques, wiring methods, and mechanical considerations. Eighteen chapters cover the “iconic” amps everyone knows and loves, with schematics and layouts for each, along with the technical history of the product. Eyelet-board and chassis-mounted tube socket construction is used throughout, for easy servicing and modding. TUT3 is very accessible even if you cannot fully read a schematic and is a "must have" if you are going to build an amp for your self.

MOJO will do any single cabinet I ask for but, the prices are much higher when custom or in qtys of one!  
I have to order, and enter into a contract to buy 100 cabinets over a one year period to get prices down to a managable level.  
After we get this 5E3X2 up and rolling, you could call and see what MOJO wants for one.  
Does anyone know what the going retail and used prices of the Victoria, Double Deluxe are?

well, I thought list was about $2400 or so, and they might be $2200 new - just guessing, though.  
 
I think I've seen them sell used for as low as $1300 on ebay.

Bruce,  
They're all over the place for 1200/1300 depending on condition. Don't just check ebay, check the gear page classifieds, fender forum, recycler, craigslist.  
 
Ebay's not the only place used amps are sold.
