R-12 A/C compressor. what's it good for?

Got the A/C compressor on the '75 Lincoln 460 I bought. just marked Ford and has a couple tags and it appears to be in good shape. I havn't checked the numbers on the tags yet.. I know it says R-12 but other than that, I don't know anything other than from a little research I did on the systems that Lincoln used. I think it is a York compressor.. Are these things good for anything?

They can be used as air compressors, but the flow rate is a little timid.
