Hello Alan.
It's been a while since I have seen one of these cars.
Very popular here at one time but Canadian winters were hard on them.

You will find it to the left side of the steering column under the dash.

These computers were very reliable over the years. Unless it was shorted out or gotten wet chances are it will likely be OK yet.
