Looks like a '72. Flareside wasn't really a term until the 80's/90's. It was stepside back then. The stepsides I believe were only 8' beds. The option was not heavy duty shocks that gave it that high stance. These were called "Highboys" and had different springs and shocks than the standard height trucks.

These were tough butt trucks that had a wide range of engine and trans options.

I had a '76 that had a straight-six, 4-speed w/ granny low, an aftermarket aluminum intake, 4 bbl, header and 36" TSLs.

Ah the good times and memories of the cars and trucks of our younger days.
