Welcome!

For your VIN, 3 is '63, K is Kansas City assembly plant, 47 is a 2 door hardtop sport coupe, K is 289 4V, the rest is the unit consecutive number and they started at 100001.

Your door plate reads 65B, 2 door hardtop sport coupe, color E is viking blue, trim 82 is blue, date 02D is April '62, DSO 54 is the Omaha sales district, axle 8 is 3.89 open, trans 5 is 4 speed manual.

Excellent find, there!

02D is April 2nd, 1963. This is an excellent bargain at $500 and $25 would have been ridiculously cheap. If the engine is locked up it can be freed, it's best to behead the thing and take a look at the bores before trying to turn it over and cause damage.
