Nice truck. I had one of those at your age. Mine was an F100 with a 302, same year. Paint looks weathered, I'd say paint it but now, how it looks, seems to be the style, just fix the holes would be cool. I guess people like flaking paint and rust, LOL.

Still using the bed? Doesn't look to bad. I'm pretty sure bed floors are the same 67-96 from what I know. Dentside beds are more common. Anyways.
