there's not a ton of give in those stock springs, I wouldn't be surprised if that is how they sat empty with no weight at all on them.
For springs, those look like they have plenty of arch left to them so I don't think they look worn out. If you are doing a restoration and want to make an improvement, I highly highly recommend doing the 64in chevy spring swap. It removes the lift block and gives about 4 in lift. It will DRAMATICALLY improve the ride of your truck, and if you do a little fab work, probably cost less than a new set of stock springs.
Jungle Jim over on ramchargercentral.com actually makes a kit for it.
