1966 F250 4x4 Camper Special Custom Cab Info

I own a 1966 F250 Camper Special Custom Cab and I'm trying to find out as much as I can about the truck. It was at some point in its life converted to a 4x4 but not sure when or how. Its a rot free California truck. It has dual fuel tanks which I was told was not an option in 1966 although the fuel door looks factory. Where do I find information on this truck if anyone knows? Theres a lot of unknowns with this truck. It has a 352 in it which I started for the first time in an unknown amount of years. I removed the fuel tank from behind the seat and the fuel in it was green, so its been a while. I ran a fuel line into a gas can with an electric fuel pump as the mechanical was not pulling fuel. I have a 390 I will be putting in but want to get it driving first on the 352. Its got a 4 speed, Dana 60 rear and a Dana 44 front.
Thank you for any help in advance.

It would take a mighty strong offer to let that beauty go. Even my wife thinks itís cool and thought it was nicer than the pictures when it arrived.

I wouldn't part with it either. I think the 4x4 looks great in this year and it's very rare to see one.
