My sons 67 does that sometimes. It is dead but if you push forward a little on the shifter it will start or it will start in neutral. The neutral switch needs to be adjusted or replaced, I haven't had time to check yet. Try putting it in neutral and see if it starts.

Are you sure you bypassed the NSS and didn't wire it open? Probably a silly question. What about the starter relay, those go out.

Start even more basic. If the battery voltage is good with a voltmeter from pos to neg post, then check voltage drop on each terminal. Check the voltage from each post to the corresponding terminal. If you show voltage it means you have high resistance due to dirty or bad connections. Try cleaning them. You can have enough juice to turn things on but not start the car

We're you able to tell what caused the bad ground? It just screws to the inner fender. Was it rust?
