That number comes up in an older ad..what are the chances.

Just for kicks I typed in my own VIN, even though it has been in Australia for nearly 40 years.....and the only entry was a google maps pinpointing where I live....Wrong!!! Only half the car is there!! I think it was unrelated to the search but kinda trippy.

Thanks for the info. I hope the car is still around.
I got it in 1992 and sold it in 2001. I drove it for one summer in 93. It was mostly original except for the passenger side had some paint work.  400 auto with air and a 8 track. 
I still have a NOS set of decals for it.  No stripe kit.
I'll add some 90's  Crapy photos.
