1965 Impala restore

Restoring a 1965 Impala two door that hasn't moved and has been buried in the garage for 24 years. Have had the car for almost 30 years. It will have a 1969 .020 over 327 and 305 heads with a 350 turbo transmission when complete. It currently has a 330 gear in the rear end and am looking to possibly change it to a 273.
I am looking for camsaft suggestions, nothing too lopey or over bearing just a good street camshaft.

Impala Rebuild

I had a 3:73 in it at one time, didn't like it much so went to a 3:30.
Since this is the second rebuild I have done since the 80's I thought I would go the other way to see how it handled.
