Changing Motor Voltage

Camping on: I have an old AC motor with good bearings...still have fan blades attached. Is there a way to change to 110 so I could build a box around it and use it for a "barn or garage fan?" Barn doesn't have 220v. Has three non-descript wires (brown, orange, and ???) Thx.

Is there also a terminal block inside the wiring area ?
Is there any info on the motor or inside the motor cover ?
If not...we'll need the color of every wire you can see.

I recognize the part number. That is a motor for an A/C condensor fan. It is dedicated for 240vac use only. No conversion possible.
