Have you tried doing a battery + hot-wire to the + side of the coil to see if she'll run, since the first hot wire try? This will rule out bad disty/coil and related wiring.
Use a voltmeter or test light to check for power at the coil connections, again. Should have battery voltage on the + side of coil with key on.
There is a fuse for the ignition system. You may have shorted something out when you re-inserted the key.
Thinking one of the fusable links are for the ignition system also. They're in the little black box by the battery. Also want to check the connections underneath these. Remove the bolts that hold it in place, and look under it. Lost the headlights on my '86, due to a corroded terminal. Looked good to look at it, but it wasn't.
Just some ideas...........

there are stories of a wire coming loose in the disty, working intermittently until it finally lets go
