Depends if you want it to work or not. If you don't want to change/renew components, then you're not wanting it to work reliably (or at all) - it will instead become a static museum piece.

But if you want it to run, then you're going to have to change all the paper caps, and at least check the resistors and replace as needed. The speaker transformer will need to be checked for continuity.

Up to you to decide.
