350 compression test results rebuild or leave it alone?

The reason I did the test was to see how strong the engine was. It ia a 350 chev with 202 heads roller rockers that has 48000 miles on engine.This is the results of the compression test.

1 cyl 165
2 cyl 175
3 cyl 170
4 cyl 170
5 cyl 170
6 cyl 165
7 cyl 175
8 cyl 175.

So what do you guys thing of the test results.Strong engine leave it alone .Or rebuild it?.The car is only drive about 1500 miles a year only in the summer it is stored all winter.
