A photo of the Warranty Plate might be instructive. Replacements are readily available, and are made to say whatever the customer asks for. Without the cable hole, I'd suggest the car had a 3-speed, or perhaps even a C4. The VIN would read something like "5R02A123465". The 123465 is the Consecutive Unit Number, not a code.
Amateur restorer. Well, sometimes I have been paid for it. But not right now.
