The short answer is probably 1,000, but there is no such thing as "standard cranking amps", so a long answer follows...
CCA (Cold Cranking Amps) is tested at 0°F.
CA (Cranking Amps) or MCA (Marine Cranking Amps) is tested at 32°F
HCA (Hot Cranking Amps) is tested at 80°F
All the brands and model of lead and sulfuric acid wet cell batteries are temperature limited in the same way, and the temperature performance is similar enough to predict the CCA, MCA, or HCA from any one of them.
MCA is typically 125% of CCA
HCA is typically 143% of CCA
A previous answer wisely recommends fully charging a battery before installing it, but the caution that not doing so will damage your vehicle's charging system is not needed because you wouldn't be able to start the car using a battery that badly depleted.

CCA is the amp output a 0 degrees Fahrenheit. This is the standard test tempature for automotive batteries. Manufactures have a minimun CCA for their vehicles that the battery must put out for proper operation and battery life!
CA is the amp output at 32 degrees Fahrenheit. (use CCA).
Always fully charge even a NEW battery before installation. Chagring system damage could result by installing a battery that is NOT fully charged.
Always test charging system with a fully charged battery for accurate results.
Always check belts, pullies and belt tensioners for proper operation. A slipping belt CAN cause a charing system test failure!
