On a car that has been sitting more than a few months, you need to go over the complete brake system from top to bottom. Chances are that your brake fluid has absorbed so much humidity that it has damaged everything from the master cylinder down. This includes the metal and rubber brake lines, the calipers, rear wheel cylinders, etc., etc.

Do not drive the car until you thoroughly bleed the system and remove all the old brake fluid. Then check that everything is working with the car on jackstands.

Even then, if it were me, I would overhaul or replace everything in the system.

HTH,

Harry
