1983 240D Manual

So new to the forums and found this after trying to find help with my car. Just got this car as a gift from my Godfather who passed away recently. Its had bit of a rough history but was still kept in pretty good shape; at least the look of the car, not the engine.

This is my first diesel car so I'm really cautious on how to approach this one. I just checked the oil, and the stick is completely dry. Checked the gasket and couldn't make heads or tails of it either. Anyway, I'm trying to find out what kind of oil, how do I change it, and any advise on the car.
