    As far I know it is original, the sticker not on the door, but the door jamb. I saw the date but was trying to read the VIN so I guess I am reading/doing it wrong. :( Using... http://mav-comet.getforge.io/decode/1977.html Using this page, I thought I was decoding it a 1976, K= October

    It could also be a vinyl top color.
