coil, distributor both are getting power from key switch just nothing after that

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

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.
