Old electric Craftsman-Worth fixing?

Found it at the curb and thought maybe I could do something with it. Wiring looks like it needs work and I'm not sure about the motor. Is this anything worth my time?

It's neat as a curiosity but to ME that would be all. If I had lots of room in the shed I would hang in in there as decoration.

Yeah, i haven't had a chance to pull out the motor to test it. But it seems like a new motor might be all it would need. Can't be that many parts to it.

I dunno, my inclination would be to leave it alone, if it were me. If you want a fairly-small electric, I've gotten ready-to-use Toro electrics for $25. I'm not sure you could buy a new motor for this one for that price. I'm assuming that this motor is dead, of course. If it just needs to have the wires re-attached, great!

But I'm not a stickler for the classics, I'm more interested in practicality, parts availability, etc.
