Who Made This Guitar?

I have an old electric guitar sitting around which was given to my dad awhile back. I don't see anything written on it except a number (857636) , I would like to find out if It would be worth fixing up (few cracks on it and missing tuning peg) or if it had any value to it.

I can't really I.D. the thing for you but the guitar reminds me of something like an old MIJ Westone, Silvertone or early Aria/Commodore.



Headstock shape reminds me of more of an Aria though.

Looks like a random department store special from the 70's. I wouldn't put much stock on any sort of value, but it doesn't look like it needs much work. A replacement set of tuning pegs would only set you back probably 30 bucks. I don't know if you can find just the one, or even a set like the ones on there. Maybe?
The cracks just look like cracks in the finish. Unless you were going to strip and repaint it, I would probably leave them alone.

I like old guitars like that, and it would start conversations.

You could probably just get a cheap set of 6 in line tuners from places like GFS etc... In fact, they have a set that might fit (I would measure the holes on your guitar first though):
