I'm not that old

IIRC back then batteries were sold without the electrolite (acid). The acid was added just before charging and placing the battery in service.
The condition of these batteries is unknown. The water may have evaporated etc.
They are worth the price of the lead however.
A new battery is the way to go. And keep it charged.
