65 Impala vin decode

hello everyone, new to this site and seeking some vin info? I recently bought a 65 and was wondering how I can identify if its
a true SS or not. the vin decoding sites I've been to say the fouth and fifth #'s are the body type (sport coup) wich are 7,3 but dont see anything about if its an ss or not. any help would be appreciated and good luck with all your projects. thanks.

What are the first three numbers of the VIN?

Two doors, four doors, wagons, and ragtops.

An SS vin starts with 166. Non SS Sport Coupe is 164.
