There should be a plate somewhere near the door or maybe under the front window that has some numbers and letters. Having all of them would be helpful. Pics are nice too

BTW - welcome to the forum

2823931 is very close to a valid VIN for an Ohio built 62 Ambassador.
Quote:
Ohio | 28 2 T NNN
(1 prefix for Int’l options)
California | 28 T(D)SS 0270 to 28 T(D)SS 0315
T=twin-bed layout; D=double-bed
If the 4th digit was a T (Twin) or a D (Double) it would be correct.

The VIN should be on a plate to the right of the entry door.

And vintageairstream.com's photo archives has year, length and model entries with VIN examples at the top. And photos so that you can really nail what you've got. For example, go to the '62 Ambassador entry and you can follow along with azflycaster's reasoning.

But please share the fun -- we luvs pictures.
