Question Pulling my hair out on this '64 cowl tag!!

Noo-b here. Parents have a '64 they may want to sell, so trying to help them out. By far most informative Impala site I have found, looks like best place to get help. Here is the info on tag, can't post photo until I get back to the house next week.

Chevy Div. GM Corp
11D Detroit, MI
Style 64-1847 BW 5861
Trim 874D Paint CCA963
ACC 108

I figured it's a Wilmington build (BW), but the 5861 (?) throws me for a loop. What is the significance of the "11D?". Know the style is a 1964 2 door HT Sport Coupe. Understand that the 874 is for red cloth bench, but the "D?" Also the 963 for Ermine White, but the "CCA?" No codes for the ACC, but not sure what the "108" is for. Again, can post a photo next week, but thanks for the help.

The "108" is actually listed under the paint code, not next to the ACC.

11D body built 4th week of November 1963
64-1847 Impala sport coupe body
BW 5861 5,861st 64 impala spt cpe body built at Wilmington, DE
874D red cloth interior
CCA936 (is it 936 and not 963?) CC and 963 is Ermine White, while the A is black painted wheels.
The 108 is the body run number. If you are lucky enough to have or find a build sheet from the car, it will be in the top right above the vin#. What;s the vin?

Cowl Tag photo

Thanks for some of the input. Here is the tag, appreciate the info and apologize for the incorrect color number. VIN is 41847Y131411.

4 - 1964

18 - Impala V8

47 - 2 door Sport Coupe

Y - Wilmington, DE

131411 - sequence number

Is this correct?

Thanks. Everything lines up. If the interior is original, can you check in the seat springs for a build sheet? What engine/trans does the car have?

I'll have to check on that. Know it's an automatic with a V8, but not sure on size. Upholstery on seats looked original, and in good condition for it's age, so will check under for build sheet. Won't be able to get to it until 1st week in February. Will keep you posted and try to post some pics. Car needs some major TLC, was a potential project car, but now parents want to get into someone's hands who can do the work.
