The first Chevrolet Silverado K1500 was manufactured in 1975, so, yes, you have the earliest model.
Chevrolet’s C/K model line is one of the longest running for the brand, and while several of the trucks originally included in the line have since been discontinued. The Silverado still holds strong.
Since 1975, Chevy has added additional models as well, and increased their capacities to include not only the light-duty 1500, like you have, but also the heavier duty K2500, and all the way up to a 6500. The only real difference between your Silverado K1500 and a C1500 is that yours is 4WD, and C is 2WD.
