Check the VIN. If it starts with "47429" it is a 74 model year car. If it starts with "47529" it is a 75 model year.

Note that production of a given model year starts in ~August the year before, so a 75 could be built in 8/74. That sometimes causes confusion when people look at the build date on the sticker on the driver's door jamb.

You can use the engine code to tell what the engine started its life as, but it is easy to build any given Type IV case into any stock displacement (or any of the common post-factory ones for that matter) so that is not a guarantee of the current displacement. The two options available in 74 and 75 are 1.8 or 2.0.

The 1.8 serial number should be on the upper-right of the crankcase near the flywheel end. You may have to push stuff out of the way and/or clean crud off the case to find it. It should start with "EC", which is the engine code for 1.8s.

The 2.0 serial number should be in front of the oil filler, between it and the fan shroud. There is almost always stuff to move out of the way to see it, and very often crud (old spilled oil etc.) to clean off. The 74 2.0 should start with "GA", and the 75 2.0 should start with "GC".
