63 impala

Hello, I'm new to this. I purchase a 63 impala ss. I was told it was a true ss, how do I confirm it is a true ss.

Look at the body tag by the master cylinder on the firewall.

2 door sport coupe - V8 - 1847
2 door sport coupe - L6 - 1747
4 door sport sedan - V8 - 1839
4 door sport sedan - L6 - 1739
2 door convertible - V8 - 1867
2 door convertible - L6 - 1767

I got this from the book "American car ID numbers 1960-69 from cars & parts magazine.
ISBN: 1-880524-01-5 You should be able to get this book easily online.

I can decode the rest if you give all the info from the body tag and VIN.

This is what my 61 tag looks like.

I believe on the cowel tag along side ACC. (accessories) there will be 3Z that is the only way I know. Although trim code for all vynal bucket seats is also an indication as bucket seats were only available in SS cars.
