I have a 1965 coupe and it will not start. I drove it last summer and got to my destination but the engine would not turn off even when I removed the key. It fried the wires in the process. I have replaced the wiring harness, starter, voltage regulator, and the cellinoid. Now it will turn over but not star and will continue to turn over when I remove the key. Does anyone have any suggestions? I am stuck on this.

That is correct, and it will not stop spinning. I have to disconnect the battery.
Lets start at square one do you have a multimeter and know how to use it? If so you can disconnect the starter and work backwards from there to see where you are getting the voltage to turn it.

Unplug the two connectors going into the front of the solenoid and see if one or both of them have any voltage on them.

If you unplug both wires does the engine still turn over on its own?

This seems to be pointing at an ignition switch being bad

Here is a wiring diagram for the ignition this is for a 1967 just do a search for your 1965 and you can find the same images. I guess I have to stop reading to fast cause I just make up dates and see things that are not there.

Well the solenoid had a little paddle in it there and when you turn the key it gets pulled down but not release so it could just be a bad solenoid or its wired wrong there should be an i and s on there search the web or what wires go where

Or you can un do the wires from the harness so its just connected to the bat and take a screw driver and touch the hot side to the closest terminal and you can start it from that way you can test if its the wring or the solenoid
