1985 Porsche 928 shifter problem

Good evening, I just purchased a 1985 928 that was a barn find that had been setting for 12 years, It is a automatic and the shifter is stuck in Neutral , any suggestions on what to do first to try to free it up, Thanks for your time.

Jack up the car. Support the car with jackstands. Disconnect the transmission selector cable from the transmission. Spray the exposed cable with Kroil/PB Blaster etc. Push the button on the shifter mechanism and move the cable. Continue to lubricate the cable as it moves until it moves freely.
Reattach the cable to the selector cable to the transmission.
