Compression test on a 79 Bronco & towing capacity

Hello!

I am new to this forum and have the following questions:

What should the compression be in the cylinders on a 1979 Ford Bronco V8? I don't know yet if it is a 351 or 400. I may be acquiring this vehicle from my parents. The body is in pretty good shape and I thought I would use it to tow my race car & trailer. Also, what is the towing capacity on such a truck? My trailer and car weighs about 5000 lbs.

Thanks for the help in advance!
