The 3E's indicate both 259's. The '63 should be a "Full Flow" Engine, spin-on Oil Filter on lower right side, to the rear. Much more desirable for street use.

If the '62 was built late enough in the year, it could be also a Full-Flow.

But as you can see from the excellent chart, they are actually 1962 and 1963 259's.
