California likes to assign VINs to imported cars that differ from the actual VIN. If they did that, there should be a plate riveted to the body where it shows the CA-issued VIN.
VINs were standardized in 1981, so it's not going be a 17-character number anyway.
Good luck getting the registration sorted out!
When was the fuel filter replaced? Have the injectors been checked as well? Valve guides and seals?
