Default Locked hand brake

I looked at a 29 Sport coupe today. The hand brakes are almost locked in position. I can get one click and if I struggle , I can get two. When put away in the trailer recently is worked fine I’m told. Visual inspection showed nothing obvious had not been worked on recently. The handle moves a bit forward and then hits something solid. pulling back it is stiff but then one click comes. Both rear facing rods move. There is sound from the rear drums. Bolts seem in place. Handle wobbles a little bit sideways. The ratchet paw is the thick version. What next: open up a drum? Take the handle loose? I offered the owner’s frau $10 as is. A bit tight working in the trailer as it is...
