Starter solenoid or locked up armature , hit the body of the starter a couple of times to free it up and give a try, if that doesn't work time for a new starter. If has been sitting for ten years, spray some WD-40 into the cylinders and physically turn it over by hand and don't start it with the oil that's in it, change that nasty stuff.
