Nice car! Any pics?
Don't go pulling off your firewall insulation looking for a number, as there will be nothing there! The chassis number is on the top of the RH chassis rail, just forward of where the front subframe mounts. The air intake and associated hose and cleaner makes it hard to find. I would attach a pic but I am not home right now.
Regardless, there will not be any 980/981 options listed on that. You need to get in touch with Tom Hanson at the Classic Centre in Irvine and ask for the data card. If you do a search you will find posts that say how to interpret all the codes.
