Question about Cars & Trucks
You just bypass the ignition wires. Even with the starter in the car you can place the positive jumper lead on the large nut and negative to any metal part of the car and you should engage starter. If your battery is good, turn key until light comes on dash in the run position and use a screwdriver to touch the little but on the solenoid (I believe the two are connected in that year) to the large nut on the starter to engage it. Hint, both will have wires already attached. Or you can take the starter out and engage it on the bench by grounding starter with neg lead on jumper cables and touching positive to the nut

Try the ignition switch (the actual part with the keys). You can actually try starting the car without using the keys. You can do this by hot wiring.

If the starter is clicking then it has a problem. or maybe somewhere from the battery to the starter is losing power and not giving the starter full boost.
I would check the earth battery lead to the car body from the battery and from the battery to the starter, ensure all wires have a gopod contact, they can rust up and may look ok but still can cause this fault.
If still no joy then the celinoid must have gone on the starter, thats not the main part but the smaller barrel on top,
