Those are Tambour doors that over time become very hard to open and close due to the door material deteriorating and hanging up in the door track. Ther are many threads on the subject of repairing, refurbishing and replacing the old Tambour doors. It is a project any way you go for sure. On my 1976 Sovereign
I tried several methods to repair the old Tambour on the the door below the kitchen sink, Microwave compartment next to fridge and the TV cabinet. None worked and all looked bad. I was able to refurbish the Tambour overhead cabinet doors since they were made with a different Tambour material and after paining they look and work fine. I completely redid the other cabinets and replaced the old Tambour with new custom oak doors and a custom made oak roll top door for the old Microwave compartment. I also redid the counter top and other things as well over the years. Pictures are included in the attached pdf file. Good luck. Post some pics we would like to see what you have and your progress.
