Insulating exterior wall with no exterior sheathing

Can an exterior wall with no exterior sheating only wood siding be insulated from the interior without taking down and replacing all the wood siding? If so, how and using what products?

We had to replace one of the siding boards and when we took it off we saw the paneling that is in the bedroom. We then went inside and pulled down a piece of the paneling and nothing but the outside siding. The house is at least 50 years old...but not sure about the exact age.
