Auto or stick? If auto, try wiggling the shifter a bit while holding the key in the start position because the neutral start switch may be out of adjustment or the shifter linkage worn out. If stick, you may have a problem with the clutch switch. Slip it off the clutch master cylinder pushrod and jumper the 2 red & blue wire terminals together then try starting it (make sure you're in N with the clutch depressed.)
I'm pretty sure Ford has used the same color wiring for quite a long time, so basically what you'll have to do is trace the red & blue wire from the starter relay back to the ignition switch, checking for power at each connection.
