I installed a cam ground to the '67B specs in my '69 Roadster along with 
new double roller chain & gears. At the time I did the rebuild it was 
considered the most aggressive of the stock cams.  I use the car mostly 
to run the major roads at 70 mph and the back country roads at anywhere 
from 25 to 55 mph.    The engine has a nice, broad torque curve.  I can 
chug along admiring scenery or zip along in overdrive.  Every time we go 
for a ride to admire the TX Hill Country scenery I congratulate my self 
for using a stock cam.
