If it otherwise cranks at normal speed, and your headlights are fully bright with the key 'off,' then the problem likely lies within the starter solenoid. You can merely replace the solenoid (which requires removal of the entire starter motor), or you can replace the entire motor. The brushes are likely worn, too. These are special order from NAPA, and they come from Virginia. The brushes and solenoid are likely much cheaper than a new motor, but might not be as convenient.

If you do rebuild the old motor, be sure to clean up all external connections.
