you likely ended up with a lot of water and sediment in your fuel. First thing to try is a bottle of gas line anti-freeze as it absorbs any water in the fuel system. you may consider fuel injection flush and a new fuel filter.
adding a bottle of injection cleaner may work well too.
While it never hurts to change the fluids, that may be unnecessary in some instances. The oild should likely be changed, as well as a new filter. The coolant may not need to be changed since it is designed for about 100,000 to 150,000 miles. The transmission fluid and brake fluid will be okay, as will the power steering fluid. The gasoline may be a different story unless you have added the necessary additives. Not certain how many gallons may be in your tank, but if it's all of that age and has not been stabilized I would recommend draining the tank (and maybe changing the fuel filter once you have burned through a few tanks of gasoline. the fuel filter in underneath the vehicle, costs about $20 for the part and $20-30 labor to replace.
i was in the same situation inheriting one myself that was sitting for 7 years and had the same problem i changed ann fluids and got it cranking and almost started but the ground wire was glowing red so i sanded down a spot and put in a new ground. it got it running but never stayed so all i did was put a new alternator and ran new fuel threw it and it runs like a million bucks.now the only thing is the brake lines or master cylinder.
