Default 1976 GMC Sprint Cowl tag/VIN #

Hi, I recently bought a 76' Sprint early in the year that im currently working on. I just got it out of the paint shop a few days ago wave metallic blue w/ silver stripes. Will supply pictures to anyone that wants to see it. Im curious to know the history of this particular car (original motor, paint, how many were made, etc..) so I tried looking on google but couldn't find anything. Here is the Cowl tag and VIN numbers I would appreciate it if anyone could tell me anything about them.

VIN: 5D80V6R501550

Cowl Tag: ST75 5AD80 R 247863 BDY TR_26N A65 35L 35U PNT _7B 070681

The underscores are numbers/letters that I couldn't identify.
