Drain coolant at water pump and drain reservoir, clean pressure cap under running water, refill radiator with distilled water, start and idle for maybe 15 seconds, drain again, then fill with 50% distilled water mixed with concentrated coolant, or with coolant that is pre-mixed with water. Do not use 100% concentrated coolant that is not pre-mixed. Keep your battery regularly charged, and try to store it with fresh engine oil, and full of premium gasoline.
Have you done other required maintenance, such as valve clearance, spark plugs, TB vacuum synch, brake fluid, etc?
