Local Nike Ajax display

The attached photo is the upper stage of a Nike Ajax, which is on display at a local high school. They are the "Rockets', due to a Nike Ajax battery that was located nearby. When the school was rebuilt, the missile was removed and refurbished. A shop class painted it the school colors vs. its natural scheme. I don't know if the missing fins are due to vandalism or just to make mount it easier. I don't remember how it was mounted before it was relocated.
