These cars had big problems with the distributors. This sounds like a fuel pump or the distributor has gone out. When you turn the key to the on position without cranking the engine over can you hear the fuel pump run in the tank for 5 seconds?

It was the distributor, I got a rebuilt one for the parts store and it fired right up! Thanks for the guide.
