Step 1: make it work as-was.

A project log for Modernizing a 1960s Intercom

So you've bought a house with an old intercom. Trash it? No way! Make it useful again.

The biggest problem with old electronics is dust in the potentiometers. Also, the easiest to fix: I happily showed him all about DeOxit, left him a bottle, and ran away so that I didn't have to deal with all the cleaning details. This strategy worked well - on my second visit to his house, the intercom was working quite well, AM/FM radio included.
