Built in 1959 in St Louis, Missouri; 1211 is a two door sedan Biscayne powered by a V-8: the 3313 is a sequence number and has no bearing on the VIN only for QC records.

You need to look at the VIN to determine whether it was originally a 6cyl or V8. IF the VIN begins with "A" it's a 6cyl. "B"=V8.
