C = CONVENTIONAL CAB K = 4X4 E = 8 CYL GAS 1 = 1/2 TON 4 = PICKUP 2 = MODEL YEAR Z = ASSEMBLY PLANT . THIS IS A BRAKE DOWN OF 72 AND 73 NUMBERS COMBINED . THERE IS NO REASON THAT AN EARLIER MIRROR COULD NOT BE MOUNTED ON ROOF THAT IS SAME.

Thank you very much for your quick response i tried to use the library but confused myself even the model number seemed off since it startes with KE instead of KS like in the library anyhow im sure to have more questions as i am a rookie with trucks from this era and actually working on 4 wheel drives at all im in love with this truck and have alot of work to do i am changing the clutch tomorrow and am a little nervous on how smooth its going to go i am also looking for a website that might offer free downloads of repair manuals on these trucks to help me out tomorrow i have ordered a hard copy but need some help sooner thx again
