Questionable 383 stroker buy.

First off ... Hello new member here.

I have a chance to buy a 383 stroker for 1700. I really don't know too much except for what I read and have only rebuilt the entire top end on my 77 camaro 350. The stroker I have a chance at getting has the following.
5.7 rods
Eagle forged crankshaft
KB flat top 2 valve reliefs .060 over
hydraulic flat tappet Crane can 22200.
(His wording here for the cam specs)
Duration 222@.50
290 290 lift @ .447
And lobe centers intake 110 and exhaust 118
2.02 1.6 cast iron heads, not sure on the cc's
Says compression is either 11.5:1 or 11.75:1
370 HP and 420 ft/ lbs

I just don't know enough if this is a good combo and worth the risk of buying it. He is selling because he built a small block 400 and is happier with it, and wants the money for a BBC build. Any input would be appreciated. And I know that a short block is around the same price but I can't afford to buy the rest. Oh and I would be using this stroker in my 81 chevy 3/4 ton long box th350 stock gears with 35's.

Thanks in advanced!
