How do I ID a cam?

I got a parts truck last year for my 70 F350 and I realized that the motor is a fairlane GT 390. The crank is a steal 427 crank as well. The cylenders still have the crosshatch from a fresh hone and measure out perfect. It's obviously been sitting for 30 years like the owners son said.

How do I ID the camshaft from that motor??

It looks like an AU: 390GT. That makes sense. It fits the rest of the parts. At least I have the $ on the 427 crank. I can't wait to put this thing together.
