the description also covers it jumping out of gear, which is a sign of internal box wear, and likely considering it had no oil in it for however long, or motor mounts shot potentially contributing along with cable/linkage state perhaps? Check the bushings on the cables and on the main linkage so you know throw isn't affected, and look at mount state....

if the car goes into gear without the clutch down it suggests the clutch has failed, or it simply wouldn't if you are already satisfied that the hydraulic side is functional, so it comes across like there might be more than one issue? Does it bite quite high normally?

gears aren't held in hydraulically but by detent springs in the synchro hubs,

if it's been run with no oil in it, imo just source another box and renew the clutch,
