Well if you have power in to the distributor but not out then the fault should be in the distributor, possible ignition module.

Inspect the condition of the cap and rotor

1971

Cap and rotor are new

If it's 1971 the check the condition of the points. Not sure on that car but check for a ballast resistor.
