Need Help with decoding a 63 Impala

I am in the process of purchasing a 63 Impala and need some helpful info about the car. I am told it was originally a 409SS car.It currently has a 454 with a 350 tranny, but i cant seem to find anyway of seeing if this really was a 409 from start. Trim tag reads like this:
Style..63-1847
body..BA11131
trim..854
Paint..936
ACC..F-2CMY-3PZ
Any help will be appreciated
Thanks

409?

Andre:
I suggest you review this website for the information you need if available. As Dave indicated there may be some mistakes in your trim tag as written. Look over on the left side under accessory codes and you'll see what we mean;
