No CV joint issues?

Just throwing a thought... you’ve probably checked by this point!

This sounds like it could be a case of a stuck clutch plate.

Put it in gear with the engine off and rock the car backwards and forwards until it releases, or easier still pull it with another car until it does the same.

Has the clutch slave cylinder stuck out, ie holding the clutch in ? this would allow you to select gears but you would have no drive, undoing the bleed nipple would not release a slave cylinder that has stuck. as I recall it's bolted on underneath so easy to remove and check

Never easy from a distance but, It sounds like the slave has stuck

Unbolt the slave cylinder and see if the piston is free.

Not quite sure if I understand the problem??…..

Pedal was solid but now ok...…...are you able to see if the slave cylinder is moving the release arm?

You can engage the gears but no drive when pedal is let up/clutch engaged?

If the clutch disc was rusted to the pressure plate and/or flywheel it would move when started in gear even if clutch pedal was depressed.

Could it be that the clutch disc has broken up as a result of it rusting to the flywheel and being abruptly freed off?
