Question F250 4x4

Hey lads, new to the site great read very helpful this is the reason i started to look a bit harder into the 76 F250 LWB 4x4 i picked up a year ago.
I was looking for a 77 f100 4x4 LWB at the time but came across this F250 4x4 the add read "76 f250 4x4 460ci auto stally shift kit disc break front and power steering Canadian truck with rare steel dash"
Fingers crossed and with alot of help and reading on this site i might have a better truck then i bargained for

So far iv worked out the following from you blokes:
The 460 must not be the original engine of the truck should be a 390 i believe?.
It has a C6 auto, divorced 205 TC.
Dana 44HD 1710HD front open knuckle low pinion with 79mdl front disc brakes and Power Ram Assist steering.
Dana 60 FF rear axle but i looked up the B.O.M and it told me its a 79mdl 4x2 axle so bit puzzled there? but you can see where U bolts were mounted previously and sit quite wider then bolted to this truck.
Fuel tank is in the cab.
Chassis rails run straight with cross member at front.

Things i cant work out:
Steel dash and cluster what models came with this and why do they differ between trucks?
Rear axle ratio is 4.10 but the front axle is 4.09 im tipping this is from the rear diff swap but how will this different ratio's affect the transfer case?
Cant find original Vin it has a police Vin: V942624P?
Measure from out side to outside chassis rail rear is 34.05" 865mm cant find these dimensions?
Is it a "Highboy"? dont want to say it is before i have some concrete because i laugh at the bloke's that claim they have these ridgy didge trucks but really dont have a clue!

All in all info about when this model came to Oz what models came and what this Steel Dash could mean? looks trick happy with it!

Cheers lads once i work out how to put pics up you might get a better idea.

I'm sorry nobody answered this... It's probable that you're in a very unique position, and no others on the site have knowledge regarding your specific questions...

About the uneven gearing values, it happens on several Ford truck models, and it won't affect the transfer case as long as you don't use the 4WD on dry pavement (if you do, you risk stretching the belt in the BW1356, but your model's vintage is equipped with a gear-driven NP205 case, which is stronger).
