Question Camshaft identification help

I recently bought a 396 for my 69 Chevelle, the engine was a short block with cam but wasnt installed. Im trying to figure out what camshaft it is, obviously the part number would tell me but i cant make heads or tails of it the number on the back is 1065 MO these are the only numbers on the cam. I have no clue what brand, size, type camshaft it is. I dont have lifters to tell if it is hydraulic or solid, the guy i bought it from doesnt know what kind it is because he bought it from someone else. Any help on identifying this cam either by the brand name or otherwise would be greatly appreciated, Jeremy <img src="confused.gif" border="0">

I would NOT even care what it is!

I suggest buying a new cam and lifters to match the 396 and your car's needs and the way it is to be driven.

Just my quarter.....

Measure the lift with a micrometer, once you know the lift you can at least guess whether it is a performance cam or a stocker. You'll need a 1-2" mic.
