The safest thing to do is run it through a GFCI receptacle, then you don’t have to worry. Your 50s model should not leak, so probably would not have any issues with a three prong cord. Many of the really old fans leak & have some real issues with a 3 prong. Also make sure your cord is polarized with hot or small prong going to the switch.
