power to coil & power to starter solenoid , is it not spinning over??

Put you a push button for starter. Just use key to unlock steering wheel. Get ya some fire and boom. Instrument panel wont work but you won't be walking.

If you want everything to work factory good luck, you'll have your work cut out for you. If you just want it to run it shouldn't be too hard. Also check pull a part, you may find wiring harness there to repair what was burnt.
