I got my 87 GT out of the garage this morning to carry it for a wheel alignment. It was stumbling really badly and I realized that it was very low on gas. I fueled her up and was ready to head to the tire shop. When I tried to crank back up, there was a click and everything died; no power at all to the car. The interior lights were not on or anything...I checked the battery to make sure it had a good connection. Just to be sure, I unhooked it and hooked it back up. As soon as the battery made connection, I noticed that the interior lights came back on. I tried to crank it and again, it clicked and immediately died.
Long story short, I noticed that if I disconnect power for a few seconds that the electrical power of the car is restored. But as soon as I try to crank it, there is a click and then nothing...no electrical power and will not turn over. I thought it may be the starter but would that cause the electrical power to go out? Thanks Guys...
Edit: to add that it is an 87GT, Manual Transmission, all stock..
