Great deal on a great saw. My suggestion is in line with what has been said.
Clean everything and paint if you want but some of my old machines that still had most of their paint look good with just a wet sanding and car wax. I never worry too much about resale if it makes me happy. Replace belts, bearings and cord ( make sure you have a good safe ground system) even if they don’t seem too bad. It’s easier now than later. I’d clean , paint and lube that fence and try to save it even it requires a custom made part or two. A VFD is nice and many also provide motor braking at shutoff, but they get real pricy at higher horse powers. Also note that a rotary phase converter will serve all the other three phase machines that you will soon buy
