Serial number decode?

i am new to this site, and looking for some information.
i recently bought what I believe is a 1973 800 series picker truck for the farm. Problem is.... I have no paperwork on it, and no info. I am looking for information of what year, engine etc, as I am needing parts. Could some one help me decode the VIN?

N80FVU08225

N80 = LN800 (gas).

F = 391 4V FT engine.

V = Kentucky Truck Assembly Plant.

U08225 = 1974.

VIN when decoded doesn't have much useful info (trans/axle types and etc).

Metal Warranty Plate riveted to the left door face below the latch. Post a pic of it, or type all the codes stamped on it.
