73 Ford Galaxie Wagon

OK Guys, I am looking for a little help. Every so often I come across an old Gem with a points system in it, this is one of them. Getting forgetfull in my age with troubleshooting. I have only spent a few minutes trying to get it to start, but this is what I have so far for info.

The car has not run for a while (4-5 years), not that long considering I have brought some cars back to life after 20 years of sitting for a good demo derby. Engine will crank. No spark coming from the coil to the distributor cap. Tried a second coil I had on hand. No change. Rotor is turning. I just can't seem to remember where to go next. Should I replace points and condensor, or am I chasing my tail? Any input would be helpful.

Clean or replace the points. Do you have 12 volts to the coil ? Do you have 12 volts to
the points ?

is there a fuseable link could be blown or not getting a good ground on the body at all, check wires for being stiff an if they are then no current will pass thru properly
