Dylan provided the following comments about the photo:

The engine is in good cosmetic shape, however I was unable to get better shots of the mechanical components. It appears that the cab fittings are still in place, but it is possible they are convincing replications. Currently, the engine is missing its saddle tank, and has seen a day of “hawaiianification”.
