I put a Lunati Voodoo cam .517 lift in the 360 I built for my Mom's Duster. It is pump gas and about 10.2to1 compression. Steel worked J heads, 750, Airgap, 3200lbs and has run 11.70's in the 1/4 with an ignition problem. 7.44@91 was the best in the 1/8th. It idles at 800rpm and makes great torque. Car has gone 1.62 60'. Good luck. I don't know if this is the best cam for you but it's a good cam. A nice hydraulic roller would be cool.

Gina's 72 has almost the same set up. Only difference between hers and your is the auto trans.

We have a Luanti Vodoo cam in it. Jegs PN 638-60403LK

We got it together just before the season ended so we have yet to get the combo fine tuned but it has gone a best of 12.97.

I have a Hughes 3742 hydraulic in my 11.2-1 340 in a street/strip 3300# 69 Dart. It has gone 7.24 @ 95.04 with a 1.533 60'. You'll need a good converter though, mine is a 9.5" 4400 stall.

hydraulic or solid? flat tappet or roller?

I'll probably suggest smaller on the race board than most, but I'd keep .050 duration down to the 224-230 range for .050 duration on the intake for good streetability.

hydraulic, I'd look at a voodoo 670403 or comp XE275HL, or similar .050 duration hughes grind.

juice roller, I'd look at a comp XR274HR or XR280HR or similar duration hughes grind....

solid, probably something designed for a ford .875" lifter for a flat tappet--I'd be real leery of a comp MM lobe cam for low maintainence street duty...roller, again I wouldn't go super aggressive (even though you don't have to worry so much about eating lobes) to get some semblance of sping life. for a solid, I'd probably look for one that has 230-245 .050 duration on the intake.
