Default Stock 69 Chevelle L78 Build

I am going to rebuild the above engine and just want a bone stock build. The car will have an M-21, stock exhaust manifolds, an the stock 3:31 rear gears. Stock distributor, stock carb. I plan to balance the rotating assembly, do a valve job, install new forged pistons, moly rings re condition the rods etc. What camshaft would you recommend?

I would re-use your original cam & lifters if they are in good condition.

Agree -- remember to keep the lifters in line, i.e., on the same lobe they came off from. TAZ
