Full tank of pure gasoline (we can still get it around here, all I run in the antique cars and anything with a small motor, mower, etc.) Plus dump in some Marvel Mystery Oil and fuel stabilizer, run the carb dry after turning off the gas valve. Good to go.

Plus what the other guys say about oil, battery removal, wax car, make sure tires have at least 35 pounds of pressure, etc. Has worked fine for me for many many years. That and the Model A lives in a climate controlled garage to boot. Before I had a heated garage these same things I do now worked fine, back then.

Oh and drop the Insurance except for Comprehensive to save a few bucks unless you have like Hagerty in which case you don't need to.
