I like internal gear hubs, so I am inclined to say you should try to get it going again.
It is suspicious to me that the hub seems to have been stripped of some crucial parts, I hope that does not mean the hub itself is junk and the parts were removed to move over to something else. I doubt it though. If it were mine, I would keep my eyes peeled (on Ebay, and at dusty LBS's) for the parts needed for it. They can be found easily new, of course, also.
The clamp on the brake side is easy to cobble up; any old clampy thing will do the trick. The shifting stuff on the drive side will be more of a challenge.
