VIN # Explanation

Hello there! We are new to the Airforums community. My parents have owned since new a 1964 Bambi II that we will start restoring in the Spring. My question is about our VIN #S017410071, does the "S" mean ours was made in California?
I've seen other 1964 Bambi II VIN #'s that state Ohio made when beginning with the S, but found information that might suggest the "S" stands for California?
Thanks so much for any information! We've enjoyed all of the threads on this forum and have learned so much about our future project!

Thank you so much for the visual! Of all the pictures we took in my parents barn over the weekend, I did not take a picture of the VIN badge. This is very helpful!
There seems to be conflicting information about how many of this model were made. I've seen 250-800 range?
