VIN Question

Hello everyone,
I've been looking around on the internet today to try and get more information on my 02 based on the VIN...all the websites that I've gone to, however, have said that it needs to be about 17 characters long. The number under my hood (in two different places, even) is only 7 numbers. Is there something I'm missing? Is it because it's an older car (1975) and the VINs have changed since then? I'd really like to get some information on the history of the vehicle, but I'm kinda stumped by this. Any advice you all might have is welcome.
