This sounds like it might be a corroded fusible link. Not enough current is getting to the starter.
I assumed you cleaned the battery cable connectors.
Test to see if the headlights will shine bright. (They are on the other battery cable)
The fusible link is generally located in one of the two cables coming off the positive battery terminal. It's a fusible bar that melts at over current. Sometimes the contacts on each end will corrode and need to be cleaned. Trace the cable until you find it. It might actually be in a fuse link box. If so unplug and replug all and see what happens.

Have you tried moving shifter slowly through all gears, especially neutral when trying to start ? Sometimes safety neutral switch will become faulty & some movement of shifter may make it turn over.
