No Power from battery to car

Dear Forum,

I own a 1972 Lemans Convertible. Since I got it I had no issues. Suddenly the car won`t start. I tried to start it and the light came on once but no turning of the starter and than it clicked and since than I am not able to get power to the car. The starter does not turn, no lights etc. I have a brand new Optima battery with enough power. Circuit breaker is checked.

So you have any advice what to do?

Regards

Pascal

Like BLK69 Judge said,..Possible Battery connection problem...Had a similar problem with my 66'. My problem was the battery lead connection at the Starter,..The wire broke off at the Stakon (wire connector) connection on the starter terminal..Was a PITA !! Good Luck !
