1968 Ford F250 3/4 Ton Flareside?...Please Help!

How is everyone doing? I recently purchased a 1968 Ford f-250. I've always liked old ford trucks and this is my first time owning one. I started a little business buying and selling vintage cars and trucks.

Getting right to it ... There are a few things I'm unsure about .. first of all, it has a flareside long bed which I thought was very cool and unusual. I thought this was the original bed however, my mechanic thinks it from a 58 Ford. I'm no expert, but based on my research, I feel he's wrong. I believe that the flareside (long) was just not widely produced... I'm I wrong on this?

Does Anyone know how I can confirm this? If my assumption is correct, I'm trying to figure out a good selling price for this truck?
I've looked on Ebay but there are no F 250's with a Flareside long bed.I was surprised how very little rust the truck has, even my tow truck guy who restores was impressed. It looks to be a 290 V8 with a 4 barrel. It currently does not run, but everything is there. I had a mechanic look it over and he give me a list of what it'll take to get her running.

I saw some companies selling re-manufactured flareside beds for over 2k! I'm I wrong on this? . Is the long bed just as desirable as the short? The bed seems to only have one major rust spot on the fender.

Any help is greatly appreciated

Ford never changed the long bed till 1977 I think the the tops were flat not angled.SO it can be a 58 or a 68

I guess I'm not an expert but the serial number tag codes should tell you what it was originally built with right?
