Still, with Slingerland, anything is possible!

According to Dr. CJ Wenk the aluminum set-o-matic was used through '69 with the transition to chrome occuring in late '69 and into early '70. Therefore, based on the aluminum set-o-matic, this kit could be from '68-early '70. Serials 226xxx would be expected to be '69 with late '68 or early '70 still possible.
