Has anyone restored a 50's princess oven/range

I have a princess oven / range that I would like to restore. I want to replace the thermostat and oven burner. The overall condition of mine is great. But the thermostat and burner are rusty. Are parts available for this unit? I do know of a RV graveyard nearby so if nobody knows where to get "new parts" then I will head over there and talk to the RV Doctor.


Thanks!

Matt

Try a stove restoration shop. They are apartment stoves from the 1950's.

Check the ads in Bungalow magazine.
I'm sure there are some leads in there.
