OK. Here's something to chew on for a while. I have looked up every combination of the following numbers found on this mystery cam I have and can't get a lead on any of them. The cam was pulled by my apprentice and she didn't keep the lifters - so - I know not if it were a solid lift cam or not She also pulled the roller rockers and didn't notice any "adjustment". So, with that said - here are the numbers - I'll put all of them on here, the "CWC" I know what that means - but the rest of the numbers - I don't know. So, please - someone clue me in.

CWC 1582 - these were on the camshaft between the lobes
11-49-99 - these were on the end of the camshaft
SP - these letters looked like they were put on with an etcher
951530 - these numbers were on the end of the camshaft
5464 - these were also on the end of the camshaft

I have measured (and calculated ) the lift at approx. .570 Intake and .555 Exhaust, but the cam is worn a little I would presume.

Does anyone have any input? Is it a solid lift cam? And, if possible, the specs? Thanks.

Yes, the cam came out of a 350. I know it is a flat tappet cam. Not a roller.
The cam shows minimum wear on the lobes - the lobes all check similar.
I did not hear the engine run - a good question, but this engine came to me as a builder.
The numbers on the butt end of the cam are all that I find. Google searches would have picked up on partial strings of numbers - so, I'm pretty sure that this cam is an older grind.
Thanks for the reply.

Yes to everything you said - I have had good luck with new lifters and used cams. This one is a big lift cam and I just wanted to find out if it were a solid lift or not.

Thanks.

The CWC lead may be what I'm going to follow up on - I also did exhaustive google searches to find any clues - but, didn't have any at all - same as you. I appreciate anyone's help on this - it's not a big deal if I don't use the cam somewhere - more of a curiosity thing.
The lift was calculated using lobe lift multiplied by the rocker ratio of 1.5.
I appreciate all that have viewed and thought about the mystery. I'm good with following up with some cam manufacturers to see if they have any info. Thanks to everyone.

One of the main reasons that I posted this mystery is just that - I could not find ANY information other that a couple of posts about CWC and who they are, the cams that are made by them for everyone under the sun, and a slight lead on the set of numbers ending in -99. I'm sending some contact emails to Comp, Crower, Isky, etc. to see if they can help (or even respond).
