Anyone know how to ID a cam without tearing the engine apart?

I bought the engine/c6 tranny from a guy taking it out of one sweet 68 stang fastback.

Things I know

1. C8VE Heads, 10.5:1 cr, D1VE block.
2. TCI converter, 2500 stall
3. Edelbrock Torker II intake (single plane)
4. Holley carb, think 750cfm.
5. Nice headers

I 'think' the manifold and converter tell me 2500- up, which sort of matches with the Comp Cams - Ford 429, 460 Xtreme 4x4 X4270H Cam

Sam
get rid of the Hyd cam and step into a solid cam around 272 duration and around .540 lift. 750 with 1 to 1 linkage and get some air in that engine. 2500 stall wrong converter for low end torque! Hughes xtm converters are better for low end. Tic converters had lots of problems$$$$$
