Default Rear End- Is it worth saving ?

I ran across this yesterday, wondering if the internals may be worth saving.. Someone made a trailer frame from this many years ago. Just curious what year(s) it applies to .
Thanks for your input.

Model A I think by wishbones. Looks like it was a kit, hardware may be repurposed somewhere. Maybe a bench top stand to use when rebuilding a banjo rear end.

It has the model A spring over axle shackle mounts. If the axles & gears aren't all rusty then it may have some good parts. The axle bells make good shop stands if it's all corroded up.

The guts fit '32 (except late). The wheel rims are probably cracked from having been torqued down on Model A hubs without a spacer, check for cracks at the lug nut holes.
