Any difference in stepside front bed panel?

I may need to replace my front bed panel ( headboard), and Jeggs has a good deal on a Key Parts 1973-87 panel. It looks exactly like my panel, 1968 short stepside. Looks like the same stamping.
I understand the beds were all 50 wide with slightly different lengths.
Is there any difference in the 1968 from the 1973?

Vendors would not make different panels, if one could cover both sets of years.

You’re probably right racefan, but they also know that people like us look up parts by year groups.
I bought a throw out bearing the other day from Rock Auto. When I looked it up under 67 Chevelle 396 it was sold out, looked it up under 68 C10, same part number, and bought it.

Ok. Found out the pre drilled holes for the bed wood floor are drilled different. Difference in the amount of boards. Thanks Tim.
