I would steam clean the under side, and engine compartment, paying extra attention to nooks and crannies (what the hell are crannies?)
After that, I'd do gear oil, brakes, u joints, grease the chassis, get it running, evaluate what is necessary to make it safe and dependable.
Also, I would start looking for a grill and bumper.
Looks like a fun project, good luck, have fun, keep us posted.

I’m curious about “spraying it down with ATF”?
What does this do, and how much of a mess is it to clean off?
