You should have a plaque next to your door that looks something like this. Your VIN number is stamped in the area below where it says Land Yacht. The numbering configuration and meaning can be found here for your 1973 Ambassador.

There should be a plate that looks something like this in your trailer, on mine, it is to the right of the entrance door.

Failing that, look over the fridge, on mine there is a sheet that was glued onto the fridge's flue at the factory when it was made that has it too.

IIRC on some models, it's also stamped into the tongue underneath.

Good luck!
