Question 1982 f100

i just bought a 1982 ford f100 that has 23000 original miles, but it has been sitting in the guys garage for 8 years and he said that he is scared to start it because there is a certain way and he is affraid he might damage it, ofcourse it will need a new battery and new tires, but what is the proper way to start a truck that has been sitting and not started for 8 years?
