Welcome to the Team Bill!

If it has been sitting that long plan on flushing the fuel lines, and the gas tank. It will probably also need a carb rebuild to run correctly as the gaskets have dried out and varnish has built up in the metering circuits due to gas evaporating. I likewise would not be surprised to hear your tranny develops a leak because the seals dried up from not being driven.

I purchased my Baldwin-Motion Phase III RS/SS 1968 Camaro with a Don Yenko built L-88 427 from the wife of a street racer that had been arrested three times in one night. His last arrest was the result of his attempted to flee and elude police by driving straight down the interstate until he ran out of gas. (some drinking may have been involved; or a real bad case of the stupids). She needed money for a Lawyer though she was going to "waste some of it on bond". Makes you wonder what the lawyer was for?
