Younger boy went to take a load of scrap in to the scrapyard and ended up coming home with this..

Apparently they took the side panels & hood off (whoever brought it in to be scrapped) and wrapped a chain around the fuel tank & battery and lifted it with a tractor loader. tin was bent up and gas tank is bowed in. Battery was crushed as was steering wheel. Tiller and drive seems workable, but the tiller shroud is goin to have to be removed and alot of straightening done.

Engine turns way too free, but the boy says there is air coming out of the exaust, so if hes lucky its just a stuck valve.
