Can you help name the brand and age of these kitchen cabinets?

Hell folks, 1st time posting.
We have a 1964 split level in the Hudson Valley (NY).
I think kitchen cabinets look to have been updated at some point (they are in good shape but narrow). The white & gold speckled Formica counter tops make me question whether the cabinets are indeed original.

There not no markings and they look to be made of recycled plastic, but I think they are just an early form of MDF (also they are glued into place).

Wow. I dunno. Those hinges are pretty retro! I love how the "veneer" (is that really plastic?) is continuous.

I kind of like them, until you open them.

Anyway, bump!

we will not be in the house more than 5 yrs... so we are also thinking of updating to bar type pulls, a new back splash and counter top.

The previous owners did install a new laminate floor too.

You can't change to pulls. You can't fill in the old knob holes in plastic veneer. Just leave them as is. They're cool.
