Mine sat in a pole barn up here since 1984 in MN without any steps for "storage". A friend ( local genius) helped me fire it up in his shop in Feb of 2000. Motor was stuck, all 4 brakes were stuck, ( fresh Maaco paint though) and we all pushed with the car in gear to unstick the motor, it ran for a while and dropped a valve seat, then lost 1st gear,popped the clutch tube. It was drivable, but smoked due to dirty carbs and pushrod tube seals. Rebuilt it, got correct tires/wheels ( 20 year old crusty Vredesteins) chase the mice and Mexican interior out of the inside and fixed EVERYTHING and now it love it!
