old furnace, worth saving or scrap?

I am new to this all. I just pulled the furnace heater from my 1972 Argosy because it looked old, dangerous, and I am trying to simplify the gas lines. Is it worth selling? Or taking to scrap at the metal place?
Is it possible to disconnect the line which ran under the trailer body into it at the fork from the main line? Thanks,, all wisdom appreciated. This is seeming like a big undertaking for no experience!

Furnace should probably be scrapped.

If you're not replacing it you can cap the line at the T with a flare cap, available at a hardware store or home center.
