Check the injectors. They may have "varnished" up a bit with dried fuel. The fuel filter may have plugged up. Start at the back, pull the line to the fuel filter and make certain that you can get fuel pressure at least that far. Next, connect the fuel filter and see if it's plugged, even partially. If it is, replace it. Next, with the fuel filter back in place, check for fuel pressure at the injectors. Most vehicles have a test port to let you test the fuel pressure. Remember that really old fuel will often not start a vehicle. You may need to drain everyithing and add new fuel. Once you're certain that all of the fuel problems have been addressed, (new filter, new fuel and maybe even a can of injector cleaner in the tank) try a little starting fluid to see if you can get it to run, even briefly. As an absolutely LAST resort, you may need to remove the injector(S?) and get them cleaned or replace them. I don't know if your Corvette is multi-port injected or throttle body injected, although I suspect multi-port, so I'd be surprised if ALL injectors plugged up. Start with the simple, less expensive stuff, and work your way through.
