My it right using a reasonable set of parts from the era or
just leave the boards alone.  I would be wary of winging it.

Basically you're in the position of having to source all of the parts from
that boards year, or earlier.  Then buy solder from 1974.  When will it
end?  How perfect?  Then what do you have?  This subject has come up

If I was really into this project (I already have plenty!)...I'd make an
exhibit featuring the unpopulated boards next to a replica that is running
with a teletype..
