It appears to be a 4 element folded dipole antenna array for the VHF-Hi band (140 - 160 MHz area). You appear to be missing a very critical piece, the phasing harness. This part has some critical specs (frequency dependent lengths and differing coax types to name two) that if you get them wrong you could end up with the elements working against each other instead of working together.

The amount of modifications necessary for it to work on the cell bands would be greater than what it would take to make a proper one from scratch. Think taking a semi truck and modifying it to make a sports car.
