Its too bad their isnt more information about these codes, I know I have been baffled in the past at a few of my own cars and the codes they had. This website lists some of the codes, but unfortunately, your codes have no descriptions, no one knows, or someone knows and they are not sharing the data! www.348-409.com/acc1.html

Interesting site, I didnt know that even existed. The problem with the early Chevrolet ACC. codes is that you can easily clone a car if you know the right codes and their is not anyone that can dispute it, unless an original broadcast sheet is found. I was told that the codes were used for later assembly line production of options which impacted the body or an option which would require body modifications or alterations outside the norm, for instance a 4 speed transmission or mirrors.

I suppose you could start a process of elimination and look for options the car has, which would require body mods....

Whenever I am looking for Nova info I always check novaresource.com
They have a list of RPO codes www.novaresource.org/rpo1.htm and even cowl tag info www.novaresource.org/cowltags.htm

Somebody must have modified this vehicle and equipped it with a V8 because I'm pretty sure that all 62's only came with a 6 cylinder engine.

Contrary to Mr. Dipstick, there were V8's in the 1962 Nova. You could order a 283 or 327 cu in. engine as a Dealer option.

There is a book you might be interested in ordering
www.msa-1.com/custom/index.cfm?ID=34890

Chevy Cowl Tags - 1950 to1975
"This book contains information about the build date, model, year, plant, colors in and out, and OPTIONS. This book covers Cowl Tags, Protect-O-Plates, VIN plates, Date Codes and FISHER BODY CODES that give the cars original OPTIONS. All Chevy car Models are covered."
