1979 Power Wagon 200

I just acquired a 1979 Dodge Power Wagon 200. I got it for $600! Anyways, it runs and drives. What are your thoughts on it? The floor boards are good, surprising! It has a 318 and 4 speed. Also, any tips on how to remove the windshield, a tree branch fell through it and destroyed the dash pretty good. And where also can I get replacement parts for the dash? like the entire thing I'm pretty sure is gonna have to be replaced. But I am going to see what I can salvage and start from there.

Being a 200, it might not have the 4 speed overdrive unit. It may be a conventional 4 speed.
The 4 speed overdrive was an A833 with revised ratios.
But I think the heavier trucks used a non-overdrive New Process transmission.
Yeah mine just says 1 2 3 4 and that's it. Will it say OD on the stick?
No it's not going to say OD on the shift knob.

I can recall if a 1979 has the metal build tag or the equipment decal under the hood. That would specify the transmission. Otherwise it may come down to looking under the truck and compare to pictures online.
