Is the PC-58 a good match with a 5 spd freewheel or is it too contemporary? I see it described as being for 7/8 speed clusters.

Those chains work fine with a 5 speed. They're a little narrower than they need to be, but this doesn't cause a problem. If your previous chain was wider you might have to make a tiny adjustment to the stops on the front derailleur to get it to shift right.
