Does it make a difference if you move the gear shifter around while you have the key in the start position? In my dad's 1969 Fairlane, you have to pull up on the column shifter with one hand while holding the key in start with the other. It's been like that for decades now, it's almost second nature now that we know what to do, and it's actually kind of a nifty anti-theft mechanism.

Is the ignition switch on the dash?  One of my vehicles had the NSS go bad and I just put a remote button under the dash and wired it to the solenoid. It was actually pretty convenient and I never changed it.

Is it auto or manual?  If auto, column or floor shifter?  Fords of the 70's (late 60's too?) were notorious for sloppy auto column shifters/switches over time and they sometimes popped into reverse 'on their own', they even sent out warning stickers to place on dash. Growing up, we had a 73 wagon that you had to hold up on the column shifter if get it to start.  plenty of info if you google it



Hands...68/69 were still on dash.
