Sometimes you can pull the fuse for the ABS controller. I've seen some rigged-up things in the past. The brakes will still function as they are fluid-controlled, you just won't have the benefit of the ABS applying the brakes for you in a panic stop. Try finding and pulling the ABS fuse for starters.
