67 year old electric hot water heater

Hello,

We purchased a home that has the original hot water heater, it is now 67 years old. The reason it has lasted this long is it's glass lining. My question is; is there any danger? can it explode? 

Do you have any suggestions.

P.S. we have the most incredible water.

As long as the PRV valve is in good shape and working it should not explode.
