VIN numbers 64 Impala

I've done a lot of looking on here today and think I've figured out several things in regards to the vin number and codes. If possible would like for someone to decode my vin number to see if what I have come up with is correct

64-1467 80DYBA 1246

Trim 879 1 Paint 922

This car tag doesn't have anything out beside the ACC part of the tag. Is that unusual? What would be the reason for that? I know this car is a 327 4 speed car.

Also, on the front of the engine block just below the head on the passenger side of the car is a number stamped in T052IR. Does that number mean anything?

Thanks ahead of time,
Chip

Chip look again, you might have misread or mistyped a few letters,
Should be:
64-1467 BODY BA 1246 not: 64-1467 80DYBA 1246
This is a: 64 impala SS Convertible built in baltimore MD

Trim 879 1 Paint 922
Red interior with red exterior, White top

T052IR = They used the I as a 1 so
Tonowonda built 327ci/250hp with a manual transmission
Built on May 21st 1964

Above your "Style" there should be a number and letter such as 6A, 6B or 6C for the build week of the car (1st,2nd or 3rd week of June)

Thanks and you are correct, I misread that on the tag. I'm assuming the ACC is blank on this car because it was originally a no option. Would that be a correct assumption?

The only options that show on the trim tag are those that Fischer body needed to know about because of a difference in the body. Things like Air Conditioning was a change in the firewall etc. so it was noted. Different assembly plants stamped the tags differently and from what I recall some did not stamp them at all but I don't know which ones those were. So the absence of codes does not necessarily mean yours was a no option car.

Good Luck with the car.

My Arlington built 64 Impala SS convertible red with red interior white top has only one accessory code, and that is C60 because it is a factory air car thereby verifying what Fossil_Fuel says above.
