1950s Kalamazoo stove rewire

We were given a 1950s stove that looks perfect. When we plugged it in, 3 of the 4 burners and both ovens worked. When we checked, the cloth covered wiring was broken. Then a 2nd burner's wire broke also. One spring (I assume part of the heating element) in one of the ovens is loose. Is it feasible to rewire and what kind of wire would I use? I'm willing to try if someone will help get me headed in the right direction. It would fit right into our retro 50s kitchen. Thanks to anyone willing to help.

Your best bet is to call someone who deals with stoves. Don't try to fix it yourself. If you screw something up you could cause a fire.
