That is a heavily optioned car. As you may have noticed you have a 1966 Impala SS Convertible (that means it has bucket seats and lots of shiny trim). It was supposed to leave the factory with a V8, but only your VIN can confirm that. The 846 tells me you have a turquoise interior, to match the factory applied Artesian Turquoise exterior colored paint with a white convertible top.

You have two options listed from group one:
E ==> tinted Glass al around
X ==> with Power Windows

Group two has three options listed
K ==> Air Conditioning
Z ==> Either a tilt wheel or a Turbo 400
N ==> I have nothing in my book

Group four lists option
F ==> which is the Comfort and Convenience Package

Group five has a Y ==> Deluxe Seat Belts

Only thing I can't read is the build date which is in the upper left corner. Number indicates the month with a letter A-E indicating the week in that month it went together.

Thanks Paul! I annotated my little pocket decode to book to denote that 2N is for a Stereo Multiplex. It was just blank before.

Well there is definitely more room up front, and you get a functional back seat (something entirely lacking in a Corvette, and next to useless in a Camaro).

Send a message via AIM to TAR6569
What's the vin and can you post a picture of the engine pad? I'd like to get this one added to the research database.
