72 Mercedes 250 ignition problem

I recently salvaged a 72 Mercedes 250. It started right up as we were diagnosing problems. When we resolved everything and cranked it over, it wouldn't start. When I turned the ignition key , It wouldn't even turn over, just a click by the starter (passenger side)was the only sound . Please let me know if anyone has a hint of what it might be.
Thanks in advance.
