He used to start it up and pull it out of the garage then pull it back in for space reasons. He stopped starting it up a few years ago when the battery died.
Im going to look at it next week. What should I look at or test. I plan on bringing a battery some tools and a small can of gas.
I would like to use it as a daily driver for a year or two.

The justy had the most putrid gas i have ever smelled in my life. I siphoned it out, replaced the fuel filter (twice) added a bottle of fuel conditioner, replaced the carb and that was good.
I had to replace the front calipers and rotors since they were fused together. It was amazing that the car moved at all. I rebuilt the rear brakes just due to age.
I added fresh radiator fluid then all was good. I was surprised from him sitting for so long there were no other issues.
Pretty much the fuel system will be clogged and the brakes untrustworthy.
