Welcome !
The amp was born in early 1974.
If the speaker cabinet is from the K250 series then it should have silver threads in the grill cloth and the front of the cabinet should be the same depth on the top as is the bottom, in other words no taper from top to bottom,

The best way to date the cabinet is to check the date code on the magnets of each speaker.

Thanks for your help!

The cabinet does have silver threads, and there is no taper from top to bottom.
The code on the magnets says
1377349
038-002400

Does this mean it's from'73?
