The "Bus VIN / Chassis Numbers" is available thru the "Technical" button up above, and the "Models" link is at the top of that page.

Problem is the tag you have an image of could have had the rivets drilled out and put in another bus years ago. Chassi number stamped into the right side of the engine compartment is more likely to be correct, but even that could have been cut out and welded in.

I can't tell from those photos.

I can tell you that VIN # is a 1966 Deluxe VIN # but this doesn't tell me if it's an original 21-Window.
It could be a 13-Window with a roof clip added.
Or not an original Deluxe at all.
I've seen a "21-Window" before where they added the entire roof clip, including the unmodified VIN plate and everything.

Does it have belly pans underneath that look unmodified?
