I know this is going to most likely be back film, but what should I expose this at and what would be the dev for hc110 or rodinal ?

ISO 6 or 12, develope at 65F in HC110 for 2 to 3 times the stated developing time. Expect film of this age to be heavily fogged.

I processed some TriX from the early 1980's and HC110 at 65F red4ced the fog considerabily.

TriX was the replacement for Super XX, AA's favorite. TriX processes simialarly to Super XX. You will have to experiment to find the correct ISO/ASA rating and developing time. TriX is ASA/ISO 320 in sheet film. Processing is 6.5 to 7 minutes at 68F in HC110 dilution B.
From experence 65F reduces base fog from non usable at 68F to usable.
I don't/won't use Rodinal.

I woud start at ISO/ASA 12 and process for 18 minutes at 65F in HC110 dilution B, fix normal, then evaluate when dry.
