Is a Sears & Roebuck a Issue?

I have a Kenmore with a sticker on the bottom, "Made for Sears and Roebuck", Model # 911.3378811. Wikipedia says that Sears and Roebuck dropped Roebuck after the 70's and I can't find any info online except for parts resellers who are mostly out of the parts.

Does anyone know how old this range is? I thought the Kitchen was remodeled in the late 80's but either they re-used the cooktop or the remodel was much earlier than I thought.

Is having a old range a "problem"? I don't mind the style but I do worry a bit about a potentially 40 year old gas appliance even if they did make them better back then. The last thing I saw with "and Roebuck" was the range gun at a trap field that got donated when it outlived its owner. It was 40 years old at that point and was still working fine.

it is still Sears, Roebuck and company as the official name.

many appliances can be dated by model and serial number.

that's a Roper range. it has auto ignition so it's sometime after [?-1973 govt stopped standing pilots]. parts are pretty generic- still avail.
