450sel 1978 wont start after 7 years

possibly looking to buy a 1978 450sel that was apparently running great then put into a barn under sheets for 7 years now doesnt start. im thinking it could just be as simple as bad fuel or corroded connections, what more sinister things do you think it could be? (just cranks, no fire)
