You should have a plate by the door, as you can see in the pic, the actual numbers may be hard to see, bottom plate top left...😳

Assuming you find the plate as shown in the picture above be aware that it will not be a number that meets modern VIN standards. It can sometimes be difficult to get state vehicle tag offices to understand that your VIN (really just a simple production serial number back then) is a very short number compared to the current day numbers. I've heard that some states simply add zeros in front of the short number of digits to make it comply with modern computer systems.
