S-1211 sbc camshaft

I came across the old cam from my 67 210 hp 327 in my camaro. It was in the box that the present cam came in. It was made by a company called Hallmark automotive products. Its model S-1211 and If I remember correctly it was a copy of the 327-350hp L79 cam that came in the corvette. I cant find any info on this company or cam but Ive found other makers cams with a similar number of 1211. There is a u-tube clip of this other makers cam in a vette with a 327 and it sounds kinda like mine. Anyone have any info on this specific cam and company?

I guess what Im asking is if the designation 1211 rings a bell with anyone as an L79 Copy cam?

The cam specs in that video are not that of a L79 "151" cam.

Hmm. I guess the 1211 number is not a universally used designation for an l79 copy or my cam is not one either. Or maybe the engine guy gave me the wrong box for my cam back in the day.

Tough to say. What do the lobes measure (heel to top of lobe, if that makes sense?) Measure it with a caliper if you have one.
It could be a copy of that Elgin cam in the video, tough to say.

The cam is in the car, thats the problem. It was installed in about 1988 or so.

Re: S-1211 sbc camshaft

That is a problem. Are you just curious what it has currently, or thinking about changing it?

Yeah, just curious. It does idle a lot like my 67 l79 vette engine did. I was just wondering if it was an exact copy or if it was a sorta copy. I cant find a thing on the internet about hallmark automotive products. Lagrange, Illinois.
