83 ranger

just bought an 83 ranger with a 2.3l and a 5 speed. i put a new battery in and it just clicks once when i try to start it. the motor turns over by hand. i tried jumping the solenoid and push starting it and got nothing. it has sat for over a year but ran fine when parked. any input is appreciated. thanx in advance.
