I had exactly the same problem with an 83. I tried alll of the above mentioned suggestions and it still wouldn't fire. Finally getting tired of a 16 year old telling me to change the plugs, I did. That allowed the car to start. It appears that I had gas fouled the plugs. Normally I would guess just letting it set would solve the problem, not in my case. Try it. It might work.
