Nice progress!

The only clues on the SPID are the build plant and sequence #. To date, only Flint built K5s have been shown to leave GM with 1x wall tops and only those with later sequence #. Based on the available data, your blazer was originally equipped with a 1x wall top.

I'd ask folks with 72 k5s that have original tops to contribute to this thread that tries to nail down when the switch from 2x wall to 1x wall occurred:
1972 K5 CST Highlander Blazer:
1972 K20 Cheyenne Super:
