Yes gas is fresh the call was running well Just before this incident I took The car to a car show I forgot to put the trickle charge back on About a week later The battery was dead That's when I jumped Accidentally Put cables On reverse When I jumped it


Timing and plugs won't be related. You probably fried the electronics feeding your ignition. Is your '67 still using its old ignition point system or have you upgraded it to a newer electronic box (sorry, I don't know what a pectronics unit does).


Pertronix is a popular point replacement. https://pertronix.com/
