Old Diana 45, What to do?

I have a Diana 45 here that spent it's life in the closet out on a lake on our families house boat. It was nearly forgotten about until this winter, the familiy deceided we were going to sell the house boat and upon cleaning everything out we found this Diana that my Grandfather had bought (maybe 25 years ago?). I guess I'm wondering if there are people out there that are interested in rifles in this type of condition. There is some pretty heavy rust, and the stock needs a good sanding/refinish. There aren't any gouges/scratches and the bore looks clean. Besides feeling completely dry, it cocks supprisingly smooth, and locks up nicely. I'd say this rifle was shot no more than a couple hundred times which is sort of a sad story. It was simply put away and forgotten about while it sat and weathered for years.

I have some pictures here of the right (worst) side, breech area and trigger. Let me know what you think about it, and if it's worth selling as is.
