Rename a copy of the file as .txt and Import[  ] the complete text into 
a string variable as a single string.

Another method is to open the notebook with Windows Write or Notepad and 
cut and paste the text or parts of it into a string variable in Mathematica.

Now you can use StringReplace and string patterns together with regular 
  expressions in order to eliminate all output, the Boxes, the  ]}," 
stuff and the actual representation data.

Or you extract the pure input text from the input Boxes using StringCases.

Finally, the output of the corrected String can changed to a Text or 
Input cell, repaired by hand and saved or exported as .txt file, .m file 
or as a separate notebook.
