Default Vintage Thermador Elect. Cooktop

I pulled this 50's Heavy Duty Thermador Cooktop out of a kitchen a while back during a remodel. They also had some really cool metal cabinets but they went to scrap because of a long standing leak there was just way too much rust. My original intent was to find a company that restores these units since I know there's a lot of condo dwellers remodeling in Los Angeles using Vintage stuff. I haven't ever looked into it but now wanna get it out of here. Does anyone here know what the right thing to do with this is? I didn't want to take it to scrap metal recycling as it's in great shape and still works good. Look how heavy the heating elements are, and the stainless top is still in great shape. Cutout Dimension would be 43-5/8" X 16-1/8"

Please let me know if you have any thoughts... Thanks,

Depending on how generous you're feeling, Habitat for Humanity loves to get things like that...

You have the equivalent of a SOHO or DUMBO out there?
Down in LA maybe? If so, throw it on the truck,
pull into the neighborhood, be gone in half an hour.
At quite the profit.

For those who ain't from these here parts, SOHO is South of Houston,
DUMBO is down under the Manhattan Bridge overpass.
Young, terminally hip, with way more money then sense.

Don't bring it to L.A.. In many neighborhoods the stove might be gone in half an hour, but it will still be in the back of your truck.

And you'll be hitchhiking back to Bakersfield.
