How can I get car to start with a bad ring gear? Has this damaged starter motor? I have cranked by hand and hit starter with hammer. What else can I do?

This car is a nightmare I need for this car too start so I can take to the garage but I pretty sure the ring gear is so worn that the starter motor is unable to engage properly. Be grateful for any ideas.
many thanks
