1 Pull the plugs and put some light oil in each cylinder, then bar the engine over a few times. Might also spin up the oil pump and get oil to the top end.
2 Change out the antifreeze.
3 Inspect all hoses and belts for dry rot.
4 Pull the cap and rotor, check the points and clean everything.
5 Might consider changing the transmission fluid.
6 Check / clean all battery connections IE at the starter, alternator etc.
7 Inspect the exhaust
8 Inspect the tires, brakes and brake fluid.
