Gee Tom, My old 72 402 gave me 155 to 170. Benefit of all that carbon build-up I guess. She's mowin' a qt. every 500-600 miles. But she still put's the rice outside the bowl.

It must be a late smogger motor, low compression unit. If they are all the same like TOM says, you can live with it.

It's not going to set the world on fire for performance and more than likely it has peanut port heads.

Sounds like a bone stock 454 out of a truck or something. If it sounds like it has a big cam in it that may be the reason for the low cranking compression.
