Question A cam dilema

Since I don't really know too much about my Mopar 440, I spent a little time in the university library looking for information. Lucky for me they have shop manuals going back to 1940! I found basically everything I needed except for the cam specs. An interesting note is that this engine is rated at 195HP@3600RPM's ( ) but has a torque rating of 320@2000RPM's.
Also, when I was looking at valve lift, all they had was for the 440 High Performance engine, which I'm pretty sure mine is not!! (well, at least it isn't yet )
So, if anyone knows what the stock cam was in a 1978 Chrysler 440, leave me a message or send me an e-mail. It's not going to be very big as this was smack in the middle of the whole emissions era. Any recommendations on a cam?
