    Need more information what kind of ignition system it has.

    Does it have Motorola MagnaPower beltdriven distributor or does it have Prestolite CD ignition (three black or blue ignition coils and two black or blue CDI boxes)?

          Difficult to see in the pics if it has electronic dist. But if it has, then possible issues for lost of spark are ignition switch, preamp,dist cap, ignition coil and power pack.

            Well the ignition switch is no good, so most likely thats it, it has a points system.

                That's really pretty hard to diagnose.
