Default 1978 F250 plow truck

Trying to help a buddy out, truck is sitting at my house in Holland though.
1978 F250 400m, auto, 205 transfer case, full dual exhaust with 50 series Flowmasters, Edelbrock carb. Custom diamond plate flat bed and tool boxes. Dana 60 rear, Dana 44 front. Body is rough, but it runs great and the tires have a load of tread on them. Its been a plow truck for the last 5yrs or so, and pushes snow really good. The plow is a Western hydro turn.
The only bad I can find with it is last spring the plow didn't seem to want to turn every time, but that could be the joy stick control in the cab too. It also needs a brake line in the rear.

Asking $1800 OBO

saw this on CL too and it has peaked my interest a little... what rear brake line does it need? do you think it is road worthy to be daily driven?

Depends on what you look for in a DD, I know the lights, turn signals and all that work, it throws heat like a big dog, the doors sag a little and I know the drivers floor is kinda soft.
If I was staying like 10 miles or less away from home and staying out of the city, I'd do it if that helps.
Rear brake line is one of the hard lines on the axle, I don't remember drivers side or pass.
