Restoring a 1961 Jaguar Sign In

Hi!
My friend and I are trying to fix his old 1961 Jaguar E-type. The car has sat in his garage for the last 10 years, and we do not know what is wrong with it. We are also unsure if it ran before it was parked. We have done nothing to the car so far, and I was wondering what i should do to the car first.


Thanks!
Steve

You know battery is junk, fuel is junk if stored wet get it all out. Pull spark plugs and put a squirt of oil in there. Turn engine by hand or it standard trans push and see it it turns at all. Start with that to see if you even have a shot at an ok engine,
