Asked by Jul 25, 2011 at 09:50 PM about the 1964 Ford Fairlane

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

After replacing all battery cables, ground straps, solenoid, battery and starter, I still
can't get my baby started. Everything is new and free of debris. Could anyone give
me some info on what else I can try to get back on the road?
