Since 1965 to 1971 VIN Numbers where only 13 digits. Here is a site to explain VIN numbers (see related link)

Vin numbers have been a standard 17 digits starting in 1981. Prior to that there was no standard and could be any number of digits.

Nothing. The last 6 digits of the standard 17 character VIN number are a build sequence.

There is only one possible combination of a 13 digit number created from 13 digits. In a combination, the order of the digits does not matter so that 123 is the same as 132 or 312 etc. If there are 13 different digits (characters) there is 1 combination of 13 digits 13 combinations of 1 or of 12 digits 78 combinations of 2 or of 11 digits and so on There are 213 - 1 = 8191 in all. If the characters are not all different it is necessary to have more information.

My 79 has 13 numbers in the vin number

I have the same model and the older models like yours only had 7 digits not the normal 13. The vin# is behind the right front tire on the frame next to your shift lever. Its going to be a "7" digit #. Your model # decal should be in the same location.
