Looks like a "Super" model RSE36S. Rated number one in Consumer Reports.

It's a 1976 or newer RE-36.


The RSE-36S was a 1971-72 model. The controls and clock were changed in 1975 for the RSE-36 but this one still had the appliance outlet (which would have been visible on the right of the control panel on this picture). The RE-36 of 1976-79 didn't have it. 


The Harvest Gold range on the picture below is the very similar 1975 RSE-36 (with the appliance outlet) and the Avocado one is the 1973-74 RSE3-36S which is very similar to the 1971-72 RSE-36S (these have an International Register clock located on the far left). 


Also note that the later Self-Cleaning models (even the BOL Super ranges like the one at the top of this thread) have chrome strips running on each side of the oven doors. Earlier models (even most Custom Imperials) lacked these.

I would agree that this is likely a 1976 or early 1977 model.

The elimination of the console outlet happened with the introduction of the 1976 line.

It's hard to tell from the picture for certain, but this appears to still have the shaded coper tone on the oven door.  That was eliminated in 1977 when the two-toned "Colonial Copper" became the monochromatic "Coffee."
