Yep, an oldie too!  1940s for sure.  And if anyone should get this I still have some of the surface elements that were original to this style of range (it looks like one element got replaced with a Radiantube on this one).

That clock-light bridge is a plug on accessory. It gave a light and automatic cooking to several range models. $300 is insane.

I had never seen a “clock light bridge”. Learned something new today. Thank you, Tom.

That's weird looking

and I've never seen one of those before. I'd rather have had a plug-on range hood...

My Mother had this stove when I was a small child. The bridge was a florscent light. On ours the back left burner was a deep well. The left drawer was a warming oven that you turned on & off with a toggle switch inside the drawer.
You could also turn the oven dial to broil & then back to the temperature you wanted and it would preheat with both elements on. Once it reached the desired temperature it would cycle and only the bottom element would turn on.

That preheat feature was an advantage of Wilcolator thermostats. My 1954 has that in the large oven thermostat. It really preheats fast, before the load makes the line in front of the house sag.

Based on the style of the clock-light, and the bottom drawer handle, I would say it's a 1947 model. The '48 models had a slightly different clock-light assembly, and the drawer handle not round. Link to an ad for '47.
