so on the driver side door ( actually not the door itself on the jamb of it ) there is a serial # 63S-33297. And in the engine compartment there is a number in the left corner of the fire wall 63S-F23441. What do these numbers mean?

63S means that it is a 1963 six cylinder. 33297 is the sequential number in the six cylinder series for 1963. 63S33297 is the car's serial number and is commonly used as the VIN (vehicle identification number). The other numbers are off your body plate. Again, the 63S stands for a 1963 model six cylinder. F2 is the body model and trim level. 23441 is the sequential number for the body tub build up of this body type. These sequential numbers do not start with one.
