1967 Impala two door convertible.
Have no idea where the assenbly plant is as I have no reference for an "LS".
The 602 is an in-house Body by Fischer inventory code and has no reference to your VIN.
847 is a tutquoise vinyl bench seat if the L were a T; I have no L code for an Impala with an 847 and an "L".
Your Impala had a turquoise colored convertible top over a black painted original painted body color.
"W" tinted windshield (RPO code A02).
"R" is the rear seat speaker (RPO code U80).

Here is what I see
06B was built 2nd week of June (67)
j223 is the internal plant code, not much meaning to you.
16467 is a 2 door convertible
LS-602 : no LS, could be LOS then it would have been assembled on Los Angeles. Check 7th digit of VIN to match this up, if that one is an "L" then the trim tag should be LOS. 602 is the sequential body number of that body style for that plant.
TR 847 is Turquoise vinyl bench seat
L-1 paint is "Dark Turquoise" with Black Convertible top
W is tinted front windshield only
27 (the 7 should be a letter check it again)
(2) R is the rear speaker

Thanks guys, I'll check the few areas I probably made a mistake when writing it down and will check back.

I am 99% sure the car is Tahoe Turqoise original from the factory, It does have a bench seat, and I believe the top was white from the factory not black.

I'll check the numbers and try again.

Yep, it is W 2ZR, that is a Z in place of the 7

Randy,
the 2Z code is for a 3 speed TH400 automatic transmission.
And you may be correct on the white top. They had 3 standard top colors, Black White and Tan and I always forget which number is which. But now that I look the black Vinyl top is 2 so 1 is probably white. Warren has this in his data base and he will probably comment on it.
