Be sure the distributor is doing its job. Also maybe clean up the ground going from the engine block to the frame or battery

If you changed the coil to a new one, it is not the coil. As mentioned above, make sure the distributor is functional, points, rotor and even new cap. New wires wouldn't hurt. Do you have electricity coming to the distributor? Is there spark at the plugs? Make sure all the connections are clean. A shot of WD-40 will help clean up some stuff by removing any water that may be present.
