05 = May 1965 build date
C = third week (May '65)
1 = Chevy
6637 = Impala SS 2 Dr. coupe V8
Atl = Atlanta Ga assembly plant
8154 = Assembly plant build sequence #
802 = Ivory in color interior. Vinyl bucket seats specifically for Impala SS hardtop and converts (instrument panel and carpet are black)
pp = Evening Orchard Poly Lower and upper body color
E = tinted glass (all)
2 = group 2 of options
k = A/C
M = powerglide trans
3 = group 3 of options
C = padded dash
4 = group 4 of options
F = Comfort and Convenience Pkg
L = Not sure personally, maybe someone here knows.

By the way that is one rare bird and very desirable. Very cool! Hope this helps

Scot,
That is great! Thanks very much for this info. I had a feeling that the car was rare. One other problem that I have is the original motor is not with the car. How do I find out what the size original V8 motor was in the car? Is there anything in the vin number that would tell me that? Thanks again for this info.

Your VIN should read 166375AXXXXXX in which the X's stand for the production sequence # at the assembly plant. No indication as to size of V8 in the VIN or Cowl Tag, only a build sheet, window sticker, car sales order slip, etc will tell you. Looks like there were 212,027 SS Impala 2 dr coupes produced in '65 and it could've been had with a 220 HP 283, 250 HP 327, 300 HP 327, 325 HP 396, 425 HP 396, 340 HP 409 or a 400 HP 409.

1965 motor info

Scot
Thats not good,I do not have any paper work with this car.
For some reason I think this car had 409 motor, its just a feeling.Oh well
I am streetrodding it anyway.I just wanted to find all the info on the original car.
Back to the trim / vin info, You said the assembly plant was atlanta On the trim plate
The vin says 166375L.
I thought that the L was los angeles.
is it possible they made it in california and and assembled it in atlanta Ga?

That is weird to have Atlanta, GA on cowl tag and Los Angeles, CA on VIN. I wonder if someone did a switcheroo? Hmm But I guess anything was possible back then.
