I'm Transfering soon and have to go across country, but am a little timid about drive it at highway speeds for an extended period of time. Its the 4.9l I6 w/ 4speed with Granny first, seems to be over reving at 65mph

You'll be able to drive it as far as it'll go. because; it doesn't sound like it's in tip-top mechanical condition. You may be better off and cheaper to take the bus.

Have it check out before leaving. May only need a simple adjustment to fix, what sounds like slippage.
