1987 560SEL starter issue

Hi, I'm a newbie. I have a 1987 560SEL on loan thanks to dear old Dad. This morning I went to crank her up and nothing happened. It wasn't the battery but something with the starter. I put it in Neutral and she started up no problem. I drove around the neighborhood a minute and then turned her off to see if she would crank while in park and it worked. I don't speak car but I'm learning so if anyone wants to school me on this please do so. This site is great!!
