You can try the yellow pages under Sewing Machines and Sewing Machine Repair.  Some repair shops will repair any brand others are specific to the brand(s) sold by the shop.  I hope your machine is still repairable but I'd be careful about putting too much money into a seventies machine.

if the machine was maintained and oiled well it doesnt matter if its from the 70's or not, actually probably better because they made the machine mostly metal as opposed to the crappy plastic they use now, I own 4 machines 2 are from the 70's and I usae them everyday, I cant say that about my 3500 dollar machine I bought 2 yrs ago, for one the embroidery thread is so expensive and second the accessories cost a fortune, if its running and stitches nicely, just oil it where the manual says to and you should be fine.
