'62GMC 1/2ton Front Brakes/Suspension Questions

I just inherited my dad's '62GMC.

The body and mechanicals are still stock. This is "ok" with me, but I'd much rather have disc brakes on the front. Power steering would me a nice addition too.
The 305v6 with a spun crank bearing is being replaced with a 250/Powerglide from a '68 Nova.

I want to keep the original 6 lug rims.

I've looked around the internet some and haven't found any really good advice. Hence, my asking here!

Any and all feedback is welcome since I'd really like to make this truck a nice cruiser that'll get decent mileage on the highway.
