Help with 59' engine decode

Took pics last night at a car show of this 59' engine. Original owner of car, Powerglide, 2BBL, 283 eng.
Was checking code on this site and others also: F0626CF. Flint engine plant, built June 26. Car build date 12/58. Looking at suffix code, all I see 283 4BBL 3Spd. This would have to be a June 1958 engine, so it would be a left over installed into a 1959? Any help is appreciated?

Alan Colvin agrees with you though he also lists the CF code for 1959 as a 230 horse 283 four barrel in front of a three speed car.

My guess is the original owner got tired of dealing with the 4GC carb and it's tuning issues and swapped over to the much more reliable 2G carb. (personally I would have swapped over to a Carter WCFB carb and the Carter manifold available on the Corvette).

1959 Impala Window Sticker and Dealer Invoice

I don't usually work on 1959 Cars but did so as a favor. Had to create my own forms as I do for all years and models. See attached reproductions:
