Briarwood

Hello forum!! I came across this beauty the other day. Only 54k miles!! Hasn't been started in 5 years; how do I go about making sure that I don't ruin anything when I try to start it? Gas treatment, change oil? I have no idea..also is there a market for this old Briarwood? Thanks!

I know on small block Chevys you should take the distributor out and spin the shaft to circulate the oil to the top of the crankcase, not sure if the same thing can be done on a 4.0
