All you can get out of that VIN is it's a F-150 Styleside with a 302. Carb and transmission aren't in the VIN. If it's an automatic, it's a C6. If it's a stick, it could be one of several:

New Process 435
Top loaded heavy-duty 4-speed transmission with cast iron case and extension housing and aluminum shift tower. 2nd through 4th gears are synchronized with 1st and reverse using non synchronized sliding gear.

Borg Warner T-19
Top loaded heavy-duty 4-speed transmission with cast iron case and shift cover. Case casting number is 1309. Easily confused with T18, but the T19 is synchronized in all forward speeds. The T19 has a single step reverse idler gear while the T18 has a 2 step reverse idler.

T170F (Code-RUG)
Side mounted Overdrive (SMOD). Synchronized in all forward gears, with top loaded cast iron case. Used in 1978-84 Ford light duty pickups and vans. Similar in appearance to the Ford top loader transmission but has overdrive 4th gear. Three shift rails mounted to the left side of case.

T170FT (Code-RTS)
Top loaded 4 speed with 4th being overdrive. Aluminum case and shift tower. Found in Ford F100-250 light duty trucks from 1984-85, also known as a TOD (top shift overdrive)

If it's a 3 on the tree, I don't know what that would be.

The carb is a 2 barrel Motorcraft 2150 with electronic feedback.

2003 F-150 XL RCSB 2wd 4.2 5 speed 3.55 LS
