You would think that after 50 years the original coil springs would have lost some travel flexibility.
Well, not really. How often do you replace your valve springs? Modern spring steel is designed to retain its elastic properties after a LOT of cycles.

Deep pitting due to corrosion is another story. If your springs are badly rusted, then sure, they may be prone to sagging or breakage.
