Check all fuses and all grounds
coil, distributor both are getting power from key switch just nothing after that
In that case the coil is probably bad.
Well if you have power in to the distributor but not out then the fault should be in the distributor, possible ignition module.
no ignition module on that year car
what year is it?

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.
