If you smell gas it could be a ruptured fuel line and you had run the injectors out of gas. where do you smell the gas? is there any on the ground?
I had my "Fuel pressure damper" go bad and start leaking. It did not effect the running of the engine but boy did it stink!

Check all the fuses including the ones behind the drivers side ash tray.

Find the ign coil and the large diameter ign wire running from the coil to the center of the distributor cap.

Unplug the wire at the distributor cap and hold it about 1/2 inch from a exposed metal part of the chassis. Exposed as in not painted, perhaps where a bolt attached. Hold the wire with an section of plastic pipe or some other electrical insulator. You can tape the wire to the insulator.

Have someone crank the engine over while the other person watched for a spark. If no spark, the ign circuit is the problem.

Thanks for posting back with the fix.

The plugs must have been pretty bad.
