The first thing I would check is to see if the oil has gasoline in it. If so, the injection pump is shot.

If the car has been sitting for a number of years, it's always a good idea to lubricate some things before starting it. A bit of engine oil and or marvel mystery oil in to the cylinders via the spark plugs will help lubricate the top rings. Just before starting, remove the valve cover and pour some oil down the length of the camshafts. This will help lubricate them.

When the big moment arrives, remove the coil wire and run the starter long enough to build up some oil pressure. Then, reconnect and try to start it.

Best of luck.
