My 1955 265 was driven to college daily in dad's 36, campaigned all through the late 50's and 60's in C/Gas , then it was pulled in the 90's when dad put his 36 back on the street, then it made it's way into the Fly for the first 6 years of it's life. It's getting reunited with the very cam that was in it when he (dad) ,drove it to college. I also ran that cam in my 327 in high school in my 36. Sentimental stuff outweighs HP for me any day. Mine has great big old domes like yours, but with 64cc heads, it makes it a manageable 10:1, which will work on the street. The bottom end is all good stuff and balanced, so after a cam swap and a new timing chain and cover, it should be ready to reinstall.
