Never seen one of those before but it looks like a typical circulator type of stove made by many generics. Ashley and US Stove come to mind. What parts do you need and possibly Sears can help you out?

that link i posted has some of the parts but what i dont understand is why there is a metal piece they call a "liner" instead of a firebrick on its side in the back...there are 2 big holes burnt in it...my wondercoal i used to have had brick this is a smaller stove than the US Stove Wondercoal and thats why I got it And it was FREE so if i can find some parts then Ok..if I can fab some parts or supplement them that will suffice I guess also...but yes resembles an ashley or a wondercoal

Those steel liners were used for wood primarily and that's probably why it's got those holes burned through it using coal. I know when I converted my old Glenwood cookstove from wood to coal, I had to remove the steel liners (and wood grates) from the sides of the firebox and then use the fireclay refractory material to make the box for coal. If I were you I would use firebrick or some type refractory to replace those steel liners for sure.
