Check for spark. If you don't have spark it could be the coil, the points. the wires or the point gap.

These are a pain is the A** to get just right, you are off just a hair and will need to take out rotor and sit in in again at a different point to the number cylinder. I had the same thing on a 67 stang and it took a few times, but you will find it..

A backfire is the timing set too far advanced.
