Default Starter Motor wiring 1977 Corvette

From the plug to supply down to the starter motor I have wiring I have a red and white, a red , a purple and a black wire. Where do they connect to.

I have tried to research but can not find it anywhere. This is at the end of a five year project. Appreciate any help.

Cheers Rick
