Cool retro toaster for parts or repair (Swannanoa)

This is a Sunbeam Radiant Shade Control toaster, from the 60s or 70s I believe. General model number is AT-W. Actual model numbers were only provided on the original box. We got this at a yard sale, and have used it for the past 20 years. It's been great, looks great. Automatically lowers the bread and raises the toast.
One of the hard wires to the heating elements has broken off at attachment point, and I'm too busy to take on what would probably be a couple hour (or more) repair project. So I've ordered a new toaster which will not be as cool, but such is life.
So if you want to repair this one, or use it for parts, it's yours for free. Prompt pickup a necessity, and be sure you want this and are willing to come 15 minutes past Warren Wilson College to get it before you respond. Pickup this weekend please.
I took thorough photos I can provide while partially disassembling, and have left it semi-disassembled with screws taped to parts where they go. This will knock about an hour off of the repair project.
