Antique Homart 24-30c HELP

I am currently moving into a home that has a very old wood burning furnace. The Homart 24-30c. I cannot find anything on the internet about this furnace. I was hoping I could get any help or suggestions that anybody can give me. I am also looking for a value on this furnace as I will be selling it. Thanks!!

    Homart was a Sears brand, like Kenmore.
    I don't know if that was always the case but it seemed to be in the 1950s-1960s.

    I'm guessing it's probably worth it's scrap value but don't know for sure.

    If it is not piped to anything or have any duct work attached to it, it may be an old incinerator. They had quite a lot of similar units installed in the basements of the very wealthy people around Pittsburgh, Pa.

    Does it have any side clearance to walls?

    IIWM and I did not want it left in place, I would feel lucky that someone would remove it from the basement at no charge.

    There's maybe about half an inch clearance on both sides of the walls I guess that could be a huge fire hazard.

    Looks like there might be asbestos sheet around it to shield it from the adjacent framing.
