I received a 770 for free. And the previous owner said it ran. But as you can see it hasn't been working for a while.
If you got this, what would be your first thing to do? Besides a stick of dynamite.

I would ship it to me. :tango_face_devil:

I would drain the fuel tank and put fresh fuel in it, check the oil level, and try to fire it up. If it starts I would change the fuel filter, change the engine oil and filter, check the rest of the fluids and make sure the electrical system is working.
Then take her for a drive and make sure she is driveable.

After that I would start a full resto on her.

Nice score, good luck with her! :thThumbsU

First, I'd be some frigging happy with getting that for free!
Second, I'd follow the steps Mopar65pa outlined.
Third... I'd make people jealous by telling them I got it for free. LOL

- fuel tank
- oil level
- air filter
- inspect electrical system, rodent damage can cause a fire
- turn the engine over by hand to ensure no damage or sticky points.
- inspect the clutch and make sure it's in neutral.

Give it a whirl and see what happens
