I find it weird it came with no door locks no provision in the door
Nothing weird about it, t'was the way things worked back then. There should be a R/S door lock cylinder.
Custom Cabs came with R/L door lock cylinders, Standard Cabs only came with a right door lock cylinder as standard equipment, left side was optional.
For decades, people locked the left door (all automakers cars & trucks) from the inside, then slide over the seat, got out, locked the right door using the provided lock cylinder.
Why? Because many streets did not have painted dividing lines, traffic was chaotic with people weaving in/out. So...automakers didn't want people standing out in the street locking/unlocking left doors.

It seems awkward, but whenever you "insert a picture" to one of these threads, the forum is looking for the picture somewhere on the web (which is always available) rather than from somewhere on your hard drive (which isn't always available).

Go to Image hosting, free photo sharing & video sharing at Photobucket and sign up for a free account. Then create an album for your truck. Upload any pics you want to post on FTE to that album. Have this album open on your computer when you want to post pics on FTE.
While you're making a post on FTE, select the pic you want to post from your Photobucket album. When the large version of the pic is open, right mouse click on it and select "View Image Info". The image info will be highlighted and will look something like this: http://i285.photobucket.com/albums/l...ghtsafter1.jpg
Copy that highlighted info (right click / copy).
When you have the spot in your post where you want the pic to be placed, select the "Insert Image" icon at the top of the post (looks like a mountain) and paste (right click / paste) the image info you copied in the highlighted box (just shows "http://" when it opens).
