Try tightening the starter bolts. Not too much. Just enough to clean the oxides off between the starter and the bellhousing. 1/8~1/4 turn. If it starts then you know what the problem is which is very typical. If not, use a booster cable from the battery negative to the starter casing. If any or all of this gets you started then run a tap through the starter mount bolts and upgrade by putting a large ground cable to the starter casing. The steel part not the aluminum part. I've yet to see a Ford that isn't repaired by this method usually permanently. If none of that works, you're probably in for a starter replacement.
