Electrical problem
1968 Ford Mustang 6 cyl

My mustang isnt getting a spark. When I turn the key, the starter turns and cranks the engine but no spark. I have replaced the plugs, wires, distributor cap, rotor, condenser, points, and the coil. I think it might be either the wiring going from the firewall to the coil or possibly the ignition switch. Both arent available in stores easily so ordering online is my option and I'd like an opinion before I ordered anything.
Do you
have the same problem?

Do you have battery voltage at the coil positive terminal. If not try this get a jumper wire connect it to the coil positive terminal and the other end to the battery positive post-attempt to start did it fire up. Let me know

I did that and nothing changed. It still cranked but no spark. The auto parts store had 3 different coils for my car, could it be the wrong one?
