Default vintage rc car not working

hi guys
im wondering if any body has any knowledge about these.
the car was given to me when I worked as a installer.he didn't say if it worked.theres nothing visually broken.
basically the cars been in the attic for at least 15+ years.
so i decided it was about time i tried it.so i put a new set of battery's in hoping it would work. but theres no response. it will respond if i touch the car antenna with the transmitter aerial.....does what it wants with no input from the forward/reverse or steering wheel on the transmitter..ie..motors spins and the steering turns on its own ..etc.
would be great if any body could point in the right direction.seems a shame to recycle it.
i did have of a suggestion to replace the crystals>>soldered in<< .but I did notice that the crystals are different frequencys. I thought they had to be the same on the tx and the rx.
The stickers on the car and transmitter are both 27.255mhz.
But the actual stamps on the crystals are
27.255mhz in the transmitter
26.800mhz receiver.
everthings original so i guess that must be correct.
any suggestions would be great
