What I want to know is what the 500-digit number was that Wim Klein calculated the 73rd root of in 1976. Anyone know where I can find the original number or its root? All I know is that the root is between 6848830 and 7068302, and I can't seem to find a site to read the book (Guinness Book of World Records 1976) online.

According to this , it was a 507 digit number, which puts the root between 8540964 and 8814658 inclusive.
