1970 shortbed GMC 1/2 4x4?

Well the 3/4 ton GMC i have been working on has been declaired a parts truck the front rotors r worn down to the fins, and the front end needs so my cousin told me about thiw other GMC up the road so i went to look at it. I looks great new floor very little rust and the inline six purs the 3 on the tree was a little but i fingered her out the guy has used it for years for fence checkin, I drove it around the farm for a while and fell in love with it, and it STOPS the franme has a lot less rust, grease zercts will take grease but it nneds new what look like rudder washer. I have heard that a 4x4 short bed of that era are hard to come by, is this true? Another question anybody have an idea what in-line 6 might be under the hood 250 or 292.

I would have thought the engine would be a 250, even for the 4x4. But I am looking at a fairly old Chilton book and it says 1970 could have the 250 (155hp) or the 292 (170hp)

The side covers on the 292 are taller than a 250 thats a quick way to tell them apart.
Now if I could just remember the two different heights.

I believe the fuel pump and engine mount are flip-flopped on the 250 and 292 as well.
