"not demilled"....?
So, it still has a live ejection seat.... ?
We had to blow a few of those in Iraq (before they were used against us).

Clean it up, mount it on a trailer and take it to airshows and charge a couple bucks to have your photo taken in it, would look impressive behind a deuce or 5-ton...of course if your well off you might be able to restore it. A good source of warbird stuff is WIX, warbird information exchange.

We had to blow the seats in a few Iraqi birds that were still live, where they were dragged out to the end of the airfield.
I'm not sure about the T33, but it may have or had an explosive charge to blow the canopy also.

Lot's of T-33s still in service around the world. There are several bone yards around Davis-Monthan in Arizona that should have enough parts for you to make a nice static display. Might look great in your front yard.:-D

I have seen a lot of fuselage sections cleaned up and painted then mounted on car trailers for kids photo ops at airshows. They usually charge quite a bit.

I would never charge kids for a pic. I've seen guys do it with there MVs as well. I would like to find the back half and wings. But who knows if possible. There were only around 5600 built . The front fuselage was not cut This is where the aircraft is split to remove the engine.

i plan to display at my house in some way. I may hang it from the main beam in my shop. Think it only weighs about 2500 lbs as is.

may do something with my MUTT display
