I have a GMC brochure that shows this model but it does not indicate a model year in the brochure. It has this as a publication date: Adv. 71-2 and on one page where it gives engine info is says "For 1971................" but other than that the brochure never mentions model year. It shows 1500-3500 models

 

You are going to have to get the VIN and determine year from that. I know the difference between 71 and 72 model GMC sprints (El Camino type) were only grill and they rest remained the same.

So why have you ruled out 68-70 model year? To me, the 68-72's all look alike...

Am not for certain on this but i think 1971 was last year rear view mirror was bolted on top of cab, 1972 was first year it was glued to windshield. Do not know if this applies to GMC, or models higher then c10.

I think 72 has a vented fuel pump. It’s an extra line to capture gas capers from the tank.

I wish I could see the pictures, the links don't work for me.   I had a 72 GMC Sierra grande and know it well.   The 72 has the rear view mirror on the windshield for sure.  72 GMC had 4 headlights, 2 on each side of the grill.  The grill had 4 large open slots between the lights.    The grill and headlights were the main way to tell them all apart.
