the question is curious- you say "turn over" but we use that term when the engine turns but doesn't fire- and you say you have lots of spark and gas but then the engine should fire- you must be missing something- the car is missing something either in the fuel or ignition systems- does it have points? they must be just right- try replacing the condenser-
