Welcome! That's good it was stored in a garage, it looks like it's in pretty good condition with not too many miles. You're going to enjoy it, make sure to show pictures of your progress.

Welcome to the forum! After sitting that long the timing belts will need to be replaced. If one breaks there will be valve and or piston damage. Do a search for replacing timing belts. Age is the determining factor not mileage in your case. There will be lots of info on how to do it.
