Impala65,

well the top of my head wasnt working to well. AA is not the paint code for ermine white, CC is. I dug my body tag #'s out they dont seem to be set up in the same pattern as yours. I'm alittle confused right now. here are my #'s

04B
ST65-16437 FL222350
TR 811- CC
3C
261916

04B=time built
65=year
164= div. sers.
37=body type
FL= the assembly plant
222350=unit #
TR811=trim #
CC=paint
3C=seat type
261916=assec. code

I dug this out of a box. I did this research when i first got my car to find out if it was a SS. Somebody had put all the emblems and things on it. I found out later so i didnt take it any further. so now your #'s are raising some questions.
Tell me what you find out. Well anyway sorry about the misinformation.

Welcome to the Team André!

I responded to your PM with this information already. I am too lazy to type it out again.
