65 4 door Impala in Perth W.A. Australia

Hi All...
this is my beastie i brought over from Las Vegas about 4 years ago... my every day driver now
ive done a fair bit of work on it since importing it, all suspension front to back, all new brakes... new door seals, redone the stainless around the front windscreen (which had been dodged) and most recently updated all the interior trim... carpets, seat covers, and made and fitted new windlacing. I found this build sheet under the carpets. can anyone shed any light on the codes... specifically the FM ( i think) for the motor? would this tell me what size/type motor was originally in the car?
thanks in advance x

I did a quick search and "FM" came back as a 230 6-Cylinder with a Powerglide Trans and no Air Conditioning.

Your car looks nice by the way.
