Have the gas tank flushed or replaced. Have everything fuel related flushed or replaced. If it's been sitting in a field you might just need an exterminator. Get a new battery. Change all fluids. Oil. Transmission. Coolant. Even the brake fluid. The brake rotors will need to be replaced most likely. The tires are most likely dry rotted. BTW what model is it?
