It's 53 years old, it's not unreasonable to think that it might of been rebuilt at least once in that time. The only way you tell would be to tear it apart and check everything for size and look at all the components that might be date coded. If it runs well and appears to be in good health I wouldn't worry about it. Use it and enjoy it, if it starts acting strange trouble shoot it, if you don't know how to trouble shoot or what to check ask here- a lot of folks will tell you what to do, sometimes you'll get conflicting information (it's that opinion thing) and you'll get enough information to fix the problem or at least be a knowledgeable consumer should you elect hiring someone else to fix it.

Try soaking the cylinders with your favorite mix first. I bought a 330 that sat in a barn for 15 years. Was stuck but after soaking for a couple of days, I rocked it back and forth in gear and it popped loose. Put new gas in and a fresh battery and it started right up. Smoke a little at first but it came out of that and runs just fine now. You never know, you might get lucky also.
