'75 280C starting problem

I have a '75 280C. It runs fine but I have an intermitten starting problem. It will start about 50% of the time. I put the key in and when I turn it to the start position, nothing happens. With the key on I can jump the starter and it cranks right up. There is an override button under the hood next to the carb, if I hold it in the car will start everytime.

Do these models have any inherant ignition problems? What should I look for? Ignition switch? Neutral switch? Any help is appreciated.
