12/17/11 65 W, 1 I - + 5 - 4 Which Rescue is Which?

Quick question for the gearheads. Which of these old Raleigh rescue units is a 1974 Chevy Silverado versus a 1975 Chevy Silverado? Look at the grills or the beacon colors. (At least one reader has told me before-- that's you, Dale-- but my memory fails me regarding where those notes are recorded.) I will update my apparatus database accordingly. Click to enlarge:

Purdy sure the one on the right, or the closest one is the 1975, and the other the 1974.

Galax is right. The one on the left (1974) started out as R9, and the one on the right (1975) started out as R1. It moved soon to R3, and they stayed that way for some time. The grill is the difference on the Chevrolet trucks from 1973 through 1980, with subtle differences each year.
