my 67 ragtop came with a bench seat 4spd,and an HO engine.Am currently having the engine rebuilt.I'm curious if there is a more effiecient or practical cam to use for the gas they have now days or should I use the HO cam which I believe was the 068 cam for the HO engine?Any help would be appreciated. I do intend to put roller rockers and lifters in this rebuild. Thanks

You are going to need dished pistons to run those 670 heads on pump gas. And when you do, you will be at 9 or 9.5 CR and there are better cams than the 068 for running lower compression, although the old 068 is still pretty viable. Lots of information on this subject on this forums if you do some searching.
