1500's are fuel injected, aren't they? (if so electronically?)

Nope. Two carburetors, one on each side (each carb feeds the three cylinders on that side).

Fuel injected engines don't have chokes - that's the way to tell.

You’re right because I do have a choke so I guess that means no fuel injection

Also is this speedometer on those five or six digits?

Six digits of miles or KMs in the odometer, no 1/10ths. 1/10ths only in trip meter.
