ARGH....PLEASE HELP

I recently bought a 1967 Camaro that is not running but the body is in great shape. The car is not getting 12v tpo the inside of the car(ignition switch). The + battery terminal is hooked to the starter, the yellow and
purple wires are hooked to the starter and the battery is grounded to the engine. I'm thinking the + side of the battery should connect somewhere else too to energize the wiring harness but i'm not sure of the exact spot....PLEASE HELP IF YOU CAN.....THANKS.....BILL

In 67/68:
There was an extra 10 gauge wire that came off of the positive battery cable, then went to a square bakelite block, in front of the battery. Where it connected to another 10 gauge wire, that then went across the radiator support, then fed the horn relay, which then to the main feed from the wiring harness. That came from the bulkhead connector to the firewall. Then fed the entire electrical system.
I hope this helps?
Refinish King
PS Some people eliminated the bakelite block, due to acid corrosion. Then put in a solderless connecter crimped in, but look for the connection to be near the battery. Unless someone totally butchered it, and ran a new wire to the horn relay.

Don't know for sure, but I would check: 1. Getting power to the fuse block prior to the switch? 2. Is the wiring from the starter to the fuse block in good shape? 3. Is the wiring from the fuse block to switch in good shape? 4. Does the car have a starter switch down on the steering column next to the pedals that could be bad?
Just some thoughts. Good luck!
