Import SQL file from codepage 850 to Latin1

I have a simple problem, so a simple question, but am not able to find the solution. I have old data made with a MSDOS application in Codepage 850 dbase files. I dumped this data in sql files ( creating the table and inserting the rows) and I want to import this Codepage 850 data into my new Mysql database that uses Codepage Latin1 general ci.

What commmand in the mysql console should I use to import the old data in a Codepage 850 sql file (eg olddata.sql) to my new mysql database (eg newdb) ?
Performing a simple import eg with the SOURCE command does import the data but corrupts special characters.
