    Empty the gas tank and put in new stuff. Also take a spare fuel filter with you - it'll probably clog within a few minutes of firing it up. Also check/replace the brakes before moving it - a friend of mine got a sharp 63 Biscayne out of a barn a few years ago, and didn't check the brakes - he ended up with his car sitting in a different barn at the first sharp curve[​IMG]

    If the shoe fits, get another one just like it

    OH!! You're going to have fun with POINTS IGNITION that's been sitting a while.

    Get your ignition file and feeler gauge out because you're going to need them. Might consider a tune up at the same time.
