In line 6 (235).. The car was not moved in about three years. I'm slowly trying to get it running again. I changed fuel pump, water pump, radiator thermostat wires and cap. I'm thinking it might be the starter or the distributor.

Sounds like a carburetor problem. If you have an anti-stall dash pot for the throttle lever it may be compressed from sitting, out of adjustment, or worn out. This dash pot, if equipped, is designed to prevent the throttle from closing too quickly and causing the engine to stall. Hence the name. What's the idle speed set at in neutral (if manual) or drive (if automatic)? HTH. -Jim
