Drain the gas tank and put in a few gallons of fresh gas, change the fuel filter, change the oil & filter, make sure that there is enough water in the radiator, replace the battery, make sure that there is no mouse nest in the air filter, change the spark plugs, points, and condenser, put it in neutral, and see if it will start. If it runs OK, flush the radiator and put in new coolant. BMW antifreeze works well. Change the transmission and differential oil. Remove and replace the brake fluid in the reservior. Flush the brake fluid by bleeding the brakes and clutch. Replace the dry rotted tires. You should replace the brake, gas, and radiator hoses, and the belts.
