What's original, what's not?

Hello all,
My 1964 2-door Impala has sat in the garage for almost 11 years now.
Inherited from father-in-law. Time to get started. I have a VIN of
41847A100032. What can someone tell me about this. What should I look for on the engine to determine if it is original? Thanks for you help and I look forward to using this site alot.

Look for the trim tag. It is located under the hood,up near the windshield, passenger side. That info will tell you some things if you post the info.
Also look at the stamp pad on the engine and record that info.

Engine stamp pad






Now that I am back in the same room as my book, I can tell you what the VIN says:

4=1964 (model year)

1847=Model Number (Which is a regular Impala 2 door Sport Coupe with an 8 cylinder engine, not an SS)

A=Atlanta Georgia (Assembly Plant)

100032= Sequence number. The sequence started at 100001 which makes that the 32nd passenger car they made that year in Atlanta. I hope they had the bugs out of the assembly line by the time they did your car .

Welcome to the Team David!

Unless you had a rare motor there will not be a VIN number stamped on it the way there is on newer cars. But even a photo can help identify an engine as different modifications where made to upgrade the engine annually.

Hi Dave,

Can you post a pic of the trim tag? It would be in top of the firewall (passengers side).

I can post mine, but I think you meant to ask the original poster.
