The capacitor looks good. Using a multimeter set to ohms, one can observe the resistance rise to some 25 MOhms over a period of a few seconds - a smaller capacitor (new) I have for a Lucas 25D4 distributor rises to a similar figure in much less time.
The coil also checks out - 10 MOhms or so to earth from the HT connection, and suitable low resistance in the primary; 10,000 x that in the secondary. I didn't record those readings, stupidly.
Obviously those are cold figures - they may be quite different when hot.
