427 BBC tall block questions

This is my first post on the forum. I have a Goodwrench 427 tall deck with low miles on it, it was just used very little for many years shortly after the new engine was put in, the truck was a 1977 C65. Anyways it ran awesome in the truck so I pulled it this weekend with the plan to throw it into some kind of project car after I get the engine built up. So what do you guys know about this engine, has anyone used the same 427 BBC for a build? I was thinking I should put a new cam in it and get rid of the stock Holly with a governor on it. What CFM carb should I use, 750? And what kind of luck have you guys had with what cams? I was also thinking of using a tunnel ram intake with single carb, I think I will need some spacers to make it work on the tall deck. Thanks
