'65 SS 396 Impala

I ran across a '65 SS 396 Impala today. No Motor or Trans. Probably too far gone to restore. Interior wasn't too horrible. Black bucket, T400 console, vacuum gauge etc... Can anyone decode this trim tag info?

16637 Body BT 17644
TR 815 PNT PP
ACC C60

Thanks!

In this case its a hardtop so I would say C60 meaning AC would be correct. I wish this car was salvageable because of the color combo, but its just too far gone. Other than the doors and one fender all the sheet metal would have to be replaced.

Thanks for all the info!

Actually, this car was not built at Baltimore(they never were). It was built at Arlington TX. Could you possibly get the rest of the codes off the tag and also the door tag? There cowl tag should have a 3 digit code (0 _ _) in the top right. This is the body date code.

It was an 07C I believe. The door tag is 166375R213644. I have been looking for an Evening Orchid to replace the one I had as a kid, too bad this one was in such bad shape.
