Question Hello From AR! Need Decoding Help

Hi! I'm Ron and I've recently purchased a 1965 Impala SS convertible. My goal is to restore it back to its original state- color, etc.. I've confirmed through the VIN that it is a true SS but do not know where to go to validate the engine, transmission, and rear end numbers.

Also, I found what I think is what's called , "the build sheet" under the back seat. The sheet contains options that are on the car as well as the Zone, Dealer, Order No., and the first seven digits of the VIN as well as a bunch of description boxes with codes in them.

I'm having problems finding a site or sites that can tell me what the codes stand for in the boxes at the top of the sheet. Example: Axle= DB. I cannot locate a site to tell me what this code is.

Is there someone or some site I can go to to have this sheet decoded?

Welcome to the Team Ron!

Scan a picture of your build sheet and we may be able to decode it for you. I have decode books on the Protect-O-Plate and cowl tags; but as you noted the build sheet is not as commonly decoded, though our members have other resources.
