1980 Triumph Spitfire Base 4 Cyl 1.5L

Engine

I only get a single loud click whn I try to start my car. What could be the cause?

* I have a 1967 Triumph Spitfire MKII.
* The battery is less than a year old and all terminals/connections are good.
* I replaced the solenoid and still have the same problem.
* The starter was replaced once about (4) years ago.
* The has only had about 2500 miles on it since I replaced the starter. (weekend / summer driver).

The engine could be seized.

I'm able to turn the crankshaft from the front with a wrench. If it was seized, I'm not sure that it would turn.
