Presumably, other than ferry to maintenance this aircraft hasn't flown in over 4 years.  Suspect last annual was July 2015.https://www.aircraft.com/aircraft/166494901/n5783d-1985-mooney-m20j-201

 

Could be that the windsock that it hit is in better shape.

It is being sold with the log books, or without the logs and cooperation of the 3 owners?

Looks like original interior and mostly original avionics and engine at  around TBO and probably not Ads-B out equipped yet. 

Kinda looks like its still a long ways away from a full resurrection after sitting all those years.

what would the former owners have to do with buying at mechanics lien auction?

Often when planes are repossessed by the bank, do to the circumstances, the plane gets auctioned without logbooks.   @Mcstealth answered the question though if they were available.

If someone was considering experimental this might make a great bird instead.  Take this one on the cheap go through it and rebuild it top to bottom.  Big assumptions you are an A&P or can work closely with one that can sign off and then there is the whole potential corrosion issue.
