For your modest goals and budget I'd just use an "RV cam" in the 205-215 duration range, clean up the bowls and chambers around the valve seats, run flat top pistons with the 305 heads, a moly cast ring set, a stock type timing chain will be fine, stock crank, rods, valve covers, rockers, pan, etc. I would step up to a m155hv oil pump, but otherwise mostly stock everything else except maybe some headers and as said mild work on the heads. Maybe a used performer or RPM intake if you can get one cheap, a plain jane 600cfm holley vac secondary carb, a rebuilt HEI ignition with a stock module and maybe a hotter coil, recurved of course.

Just keep it simple and you'll be able to get close to 1hp/ci on a shoestring budget.
