I don't believe they kept production numbers on paint. Production numbers were limited to the big three. Body style (2 door coupe, convertible, station wagon,...), Model (Impala, Biscayne, belair,...) , and V8 or I6. They really didn't delineate between 283 and 327 production numbers, but only 16,902 Big Block 409 cars were built in 1963 and they didn't delineate between low HP 409, mid HP 409's, and Hight HP 409's. All of this creates a lot of issues with true 409 cars and the fakes as nothing in the vin or cowl tag is a true indicator of a 409 car. The rarest option for 1963 was the Z-11 package. Only 57 Z-11's were made and they had a 427 "W" motor, aluminum hood and fenders and some other go fast goodies.
