small block Chevy cam choice

Hi everyone looking for advice and suggestions please. This motor is going in a 63 Nova wagon for cruising street performance and weekend bracket racing occasionally. Heres what I have now.
350 4 bolt .030 over
461 heads 64 cc 190 150
balanced crank rods and pistons
stock rods reconditioned with ARP bolts
speed pro H345NP pistons
Edelbrock performer EPS intake
Edelbrock 600 carb
373 gears
powerglide with 11 inch converter
The cam I am looking at from melling is # 22213
214 int & exh @ .050
288 int & exh Adv duration
443 int & exh lift
107 int & 117 exh lobe center
It is advertised for good low to midrange torque and a fair idle with a 1700 to 5200 power range.
Does this cam look ok for us? Or can anyone suggest a different cam? Also should I use 1.5 or 1.6 rockers. How will this cam "sound"? Thanks for the help! ccnova
