Question: What engine can go into a 1970 Ford F150 custom?

I have not found anything about a 1970 Ford F150, but this guy says he has one that has engine problems. More likely it is an F100 or F250. He does say it is a 302 engine. Does anybody know how much an engine for this truck would cost? What engine can fit in it? Does anybody have a link that leads to the engine?
