Default Kamado Rescue - information needed

I responded to a CL ad for a "Japanese BBQ" yesterday. The owner said it was "in good shape", but did not know what it was. There were very few pictures with the ad. Unfortunately, the seller lived just over an hour away, but I made the trek. The bad news is that the Kamado is in rough shape, as evidenced by the pictures below. The good news is that the seller felt so bad that he had not represented the condition very well, and ended up giving it to me at no cost. Some pictures:







As you can see, the firebox is shot:







So, a couple of questions:

1) What "brand" and how old? In doing some searches, the information provided by Swamprb (on this forum) is the most helpful. I believe it is a "Mt. Fuji" style that could have been made by Imperial, Noritake, or Kikuya. I have no idea how old it is.

2) Can the firebox be replaced, and if so, from what vendor? The original is in so many parts, with some chunks missing, that I doubt I can piece it back together.

3) What is the best know method for fixing the cracks in the body of the cooker?

4) Can the draft door be retrofitted with something functional? I have seen references to using a BGE replacement part.

Thank you in advance for any information you can provide.

CL kills me. I went to get a "new" 18" Weber Kettle. Upon arrival it was a DD date stamp (2000) dinged up, rusted and in really sorry shape. I didn't know Weber sent 13 year old new stock that was rusted and damaged.

People on CL kill me sometimes.

Good luck with your project.
