If it's a stock engine then it's probably not going to be much faster than that. A 3/4 ton has heavy duty axles which means it is going to weigh more than a 1/2 ton. It probably has a Turbo 400 transmission too, I assume? That transmission uses a little more power than a Turbo 350 will too. From the factory the engine made less than 200 hp and now, almost 30 years later, probably makes even less.

You could do things like give it a tune up if you haven't already done so, adjust ignition timing and fine tune the carburetor, etc. But other than that it's going to be an uphill battle.
