I don't think it could be easily modified to do any other, more useful, job. So your options would seem to be

i) break it for parts (perhaps rather a lot of effort for not much reward)

ii) sell it 'as is' as a project for someone (easiest, and might get you a reasonable sum for little effort)

iii) get it working and either keep it or sell it (it would sell for more as a 'worker', but demand is relatively limited so the increased value might not repay your effort, in cash terms at least).

In any event, shipping might be expensive !

Cheers,

GJ
