Lubricate the shift linkage on the side of the transmission. Sitting so long it could be seized up. The fact that it starts in Drive shows that the linkage isn't operating properly. Spray every moving part of the shifting mechanism with a good penetrating spray, (not WD-40) PB Blaster is pretty good and available at most every Walmart, auto parts store, etc.
