Default Browning's Highboy beast build

Ok, so today I picked up my new project truck. Its a 1975 F-250 XLT Custom. It's the 4x4 Highboy with a 460 big block and a C6 auto.

NEEDS
-U-Joints on the front driveshaft and reinstalled
-new air filter and the lower pan or at least a filter
-not sure if fuel gauge works gotta figure that out
-tailgate or a net at least, lost my front shaft on the way home cause it rolled out hahaha
-the correct 75 grille because the surround on this one makes it a major PITA to open the hood, plus part of the insert is busted.
-pinion seal
-body work(why I bought it)
-FRIGGIN CUPHOLDERS AND A STEREO


WANTS
-tint on the windows
-cab lights
-toolbox
-new rear bumper
-bigger steering wheel
-saddle seat cover
-different back bumper
-new center caps for the wheels
-possibly replace the glass packs with mufflers and kick tips out the side.

Thanks guys, mainly going to clean the motor up. Already has a decent Edelbrock carb and intake manifold, can't remember if she had headers or not. The 460 is not original, they never came with them, it was originally a 360 truck according to the VIN and it verifies that it IS a true Highboy.
