Tips for Modding Retro 'Fridge for Energy Efficiency?

Good Questions

Q: I'm embarking on a new DIY project. I just purchased a 1950s Norge refrigerator that I found on Craigslist for $150. As far as I can tell everything seems to be working, including the clock! I do, however, have some concerns about energy consumption. Most of the articles I have read so far deal with restoring vintage appliances. I am more interested in modding the fridge with newer parts so that it is reliable and energy efficient. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
