I've seen a few pieces of equipment that had been turned into movie props:
completely gutted so only the visible exterior esthetics were in any sense
intact. Sometimes it was done to reduce weight to make them easier to
manoeuver, or they were filled with xmas lights or some such. One never knows,
but I wouldn't anticipate much if something had been through a movie prop phase
during it's existence.
