When was the last time the car ran normally?
leaving the ignition on in the wrong spot can burn the points. clean them
I have had new condensers be bad in the box, go back to the old one.

Remove the distributor cap, twist the rotor, it should turn about 15 degrees and then spring back. If it doesn't you are not getting any advance with increasing RPM. You can also check this by connecting your timing light, checking timing at tickover, then increasing rpm and watching the timing mark moving towards more advance.
