Converting Oven from gas to Electric


I have a 1940 Wedgewood gas Range that I want the oven converted from gas to electric. Is this possible? Failing that I would like to have an electrinic ignition installed in the oven to replace the free standing pilot. Any insight or assitance would be a great help.

Thanks

IMO it is not safely possible to do either. Your choices are to replace the unit or leave it as is.
