Old Japenese Kamado

I bought an old Japanese Kinuurayaki Kamado #5 this week from some people that purchased estate house that has sat empty for ten years. I am an experienced bbq/smoker, but I have no experience with an egg style cooker. The kamado is all in one piece and able to be moved without worry of it breaking, but there are some long cracks that are visible on the inside and outside. The bottom firebox is in large pieces with a few small pieces broken off. I have found web pages showing how to make repairs...although I am not sure if repairs are necessary.

I am deciding if I want to repair and keep it to smoke things (like brisket) on, or if I should sell it and buy something else. (like a modern green egg) What kind of price can I expect to get if I sell it? (repaired and as is) How do these compare to modern green eggs? Any feedback or info you can give me is greatly appreciated!
