Default Can this kamado be saved?

There's a damaged old kamado possibly available cheap.
I could use some advice. I have only seen photos so far, but it appears that pieces broke out of the bottom of the unit (the portion including the draft vent) but those pieces have been saved.

If the pieces are still available, can this thing be repaired satisfactorily with furnace cement?

Also, my understanding is that an old kamado (unlike a BGE or other newer kamado) isn't suitable for high temperature cooking. But the cookbooks I've seen for the old kamados only seem to talk about medium temps. Can these older things be used OK for low-and-slow? Can anyone point me to some instructions for that? I don't want to buy this thing unless it is fixable and can do some 'que.

Pictures attached. Thanks!
