"134" VIN 1971 Malibu What does it mean?

I just picked up a 71 Malibu body.The vin. starts with 134 I'm not familiar with this one. I thought 135=6cyl 136=V8. It has the orig. gold paint on it with a white painted top and vinyl top trim,looks like it had a V8 buy the frame mounts for the engine. It is a two door hardtop.

Its not a Malibu, the Malibu was a upscale model in the Chevelle line..
The Chevelle was the basic car and was limited in trim and options available.
