Got the car off my friend that has had it since 85 and he drove it into the barn in 95 been there ever since, he tried to start it acouple years ago but motor was locked up from sitting , would like to get it unlocked before pulling the motor I don't know anything about rotary motors . The interior is clean and body solid and straight just needs mechanical work.

Awesome find. Try pulling spark plugs squirt some oil in the holes and put some oil down the carburetor. Let it sit overnight. Then get a socket on the front pulley bolt and work it back and forth until it comes loose.

Any motor oil. It is just to keep the apex seals lubed while you are trying to turn it.
