I agree with Andy -- assess the rim by itself before stringing it up again. I'm just an amateur, and have maybe 10 wheels under my belt, total. But I've already learned that wringing a round wheel out of a crooked rim can be a boatload of work and possibly not worth it. I'm living with maybe a mm of radial truth on an old rim of similar vintage to yours, because I didn't take good enough care of it long ago. I'd rather have good uniform tension than a perfectly round wheel, and it's only noticeable if I'm on really flat pavement.
