Can you take the pedal assembly apart? My guess is you'll find a copper disk that's stuck to it's mate in there. If you pull them apart and turn them around they should be good for another 40 years.

I have done so - there's a fair amount of dust, rust and a porcelain insulator which contains a somewhat creaky spring assembly that I probably won't be able to get into without breaking the rusty bolt holding it together. I'm going to get some CRC onto it, but I don't hold onto a huge amount of hope.

Good on you for trying! I hope the bolt comes free for you, and if it does I recommend replacing it when you reassemble things.
