I have to say that when I replaced the rear suspension bushings on my 1963 PV a few years back, they initially looked pretty bad from the outside (dry cracked rubber) but upon actually removing them I found that the dry rotted layer was very thin, and the bushings were still really in great shape throughout 95% of the rubber. It really wouldn't have been a problem to let them stay in use another decade or two past the 55+ years they'd already served.
