I don't know of it racing at Suffolk. It had big gold lettering on the front fenders. Both originals were used on the car, it would have been cool to keep one of the original lettered up fenders.
I'll post a picture of it leaving the line as "Fine 409".

Bill, code 950, black with white top....
Here's a picture in its race form with the original paint. This shot is from the mid 60's. The original Crager mags go with the car.
The paint code is 950, black with white painted top.

Based on the VIN on the block, that car was produced at the beginning of August '63 (very late production) at the Tarrytown plant (should have a T in the VIN) and it makes sense based on the 4th week of July body built date on the cowl tag. Nice car. It's hard to find real ones.

Verne, the ID number is as you mentioned; 31847T319211.
Can you believe how they made the T on the pad? They used two "1's", the top of the T is a 1.

Tim,
Prior to the production of your car, Tarrytown either lost or broke the "T". Many original blocks and 4-spds I've seen had no "T" at all with the VIN stamp. They also broke or lost the normal sized "1"s and used larger ones. They figured out a way to "fix" those problems by the time your late car was produced. All of these variations are a blessing for these cars, because there is no one standard that applies to all of them. (as with Corvettes) That makes it harder to counterfeit one correctly. A lot of people might look at that engine pad and think Ray Charles stamped it, but it's REAL.
Tarrytown also had the habit (the worker did anyway) of stamping the trans VIN on the tail housing rather than the side of the main case.

----Tim,,,This 409 would benefit from a set of correct whitewalls. Its not that I am any kind of a whitewall freak, but a black 63 SS needs the white stripes to look "right"!!! If it was a black two door post ordered for racing or something similar I might be persuaded otherwise, but the owner will get back more than the price of those whitewall tires by far at auction.....Bill S

Bill is right on, a set of 1" wide bias ply whitewalls would really make a big difference and please don't think I'm pick'n but get a correct master cylinder for it. These two items would more than pay for themselves. Really nice and very desirable car. Good luck with the sale, wish my toy box wasn't so full!!

It could whitewalls to dress it up a bit. We don't know if it had them originally. We hope to have the master cylinder corrected for the auction.

I'm w/ you two too, thin or wide the only whitewalls I like are those spun to the inside.
I do like redlines though and white letters too!
That said, the whitewall advice above is still best for buyer appeal.

White roof along with some period correct M/T super stock cheaters on the back would do it for me.

The blackwalls make the car stand out. "Everyone" puts whitewalls on them. BUT, the correct WWs would look good too. Perhaps a set US Royal Masters for a 1963 Day 2 cruiser look.

Thanks to the Guys in Austin for the help, you can't go wrong buying a car from them and to our very own resident 409 afficionado, Vern for all the help. Tom and I got the exterior detailed and took the '09 for a nice ride in the country.

Absolutely love it heater delete too!!!!!
guy on my street had a 63 409 convertible
Dual quad it was blue and that car was fast !!!!!!
( I was about 11 and already a gear head I'd fetch him
Green bottle cokes while he worked on it
And I'd get rides while he power shifted
He beat a lot of newer muscle cars ......helped put the
Rebuilt engine back in ......still love 409s ...

----Its funny, the only 409 car in my neighborhood back in the era was a maroon/black gut 340 horse 4spd convert. It ran pretty good but he regularly got stomped by his buddies 63 Biscayne with a transplanted 327/365 Vette motor. I was 17 or so at the time......Bill S

That's what will always be cool about 409's. EVERYBODY has a great 409 story from back in the day.

----Close enough! That maroon 63 was based around Chippewa Lake as was the Biscayne. Rumor had it that the 365 motor was a bit warm as well as the trans, if you know what I mean.

----I knew that black car would look right with the whites on it. Does it ever!!!......Bill S

Correct B.F. Goodrich Silvertown's , Correct master, Correct 4 core radiator. Nice exterior detail and buff.

All fluids fresh.

Lot's of the repro parts already swapped out with NOS or originals. Still more to follow.

Yes, it's now in NicKey inventory and we'll let the next owner decide on the color of the top. It's a quick fix, but I like it this way best as far as color.

I offered to drive it to St. Charles, but Tom wanted to pick it up. That would have been an expensive drive with 4.56 gears.
