Clear coat, or not, I've had great success using modern polishing / rubbing products, followed by modern wax or protectant. So, in answer to the original question, I'd say 'yes', give it a try. Can't hurt. And, if you are apprehensive, try it on a small discreet area.
Apology not needed. Pay no attention, as needed.
(I think you will find that there are several guys here, that have clear coat paint on their old Fords, even back pre-war and beyond. So, in my book, you question is easily justified, even though I don't think there is any reason for 'justification'.)

To answer the OP‘s question, clay blocking is only a first step and is used mainly to remove remove grit and grime from the paint surface. I just bought a Maguires synthetically block and man is it an amazing works great and you don’t have to worry about dropping it on the ground and then having to throw it away like you do with an actual piece of clay. So yes start with clay blocking the car, rub your hand on it feel if it smooth enough, and if so then what I use is the three stages of 3M perfect it product. Each of the three levels has its own concoction, and its own pad. I use the 3 inch pads for more control, But it does take longer. In your case you may only need to do number two and number three stages, as number one stage goes down pretty deep. I have done this recently on a 30 year old lacquer paint job, came out stunning. So good luck with your project

To get flat paint I add cornstarch. The next guy can buff it out with whatever he chooses. If I buffed my stuff out the world would see my lack of skill with body work. Just sayin,....

Hilarious! Off topic but my brother is a '32 Ford guy. Period. Whenever he comes in close contact with my '49 Nash he puts a paper bag over his head. For those with long memories recall the Unknown Comic or early N.O. Saints football fans.
