Do you have a battery charger or another car you can use to connect jumper cables to the ford so we can do some testing?

Nothing will work with such a low voltage to he battery. You need to charge the battery so it has 12 volts, then see if the car will start. If it does check the voltage at the battery with the engine running. If the voltage is less then 13.5 the alternator may be bad.
