need help with cowl tag 1965 SS 283

I'm looking to finally purchase a 65 Impala SS 283 but can't seem to find the resource to figure out the last line on the cowl tag which is:

2MR5W

As far as I can figure maybe means powerglide trans? right side mirror? extra speaker??

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks.

Trim tag

5W is option A49 custom deluxe belts with front retractors.

The references to 5W on various sites :Nova, Corvair, etc. is wrong and needs to be corrected. There was never a right side mirror installed as a factory option in these years.
