umm sorry to say but there isn't any site with early girl history. Only site i can think of is here, you ask the questions, we give you the answers.
So far i can tell you have an old police spec VK. Nothing that special really.
VKs don't have a VIN number as well.

Well i have been told by some ppl that worked at Holden at the time, 1979, that there is about 50 VB SL/E 308 packs built. Mine has the 5 litre motor and M21 aussie design and built close ratio 4 speed manual. Thats why my SL/E is so special.
Also in my VB-VK Holden parts catalogue/numbers it states nothing about VIN numbers. Has build codes, model codes and the alike but thats it.
