Here is a breakdown of the information on the body tag you provided...

Body Build Date: 01 = January, A = First Week
The first two digits are numbers 01 through 12, indicating the month of manufacture. The letter is A-E, indicating the week of the month. If the letter is an "A" it indicates the first week of the month.

65-10767 WRN 2535 BODY
Style: 65 = 1965 10767: 1 = Chevrolet, 07 = Corsa, 67 = 2-Door Convertible,
WRN = Willow Run, Michigan, Production Sequence No: 2535

1965 Chevrolet Corvair Corsa 2-Door Convertible - 4 Passenger, Total Production: 8,353


TRim: 713- = BLACK
This 3 digit codes represents the interior color and seat type.

Paint: N-2 = MAROON "Madeira Maroon Poly." Top color code: 2 = BLACK
Lucite No. 4624LH, Rinshed-Mason No. A1711M, Ditzler No. DDL 50700



ACC = Accessory line
When decoding ACC line on the Fisher body tags, be aware that body tags do not include any options that did not require any body modification be done by Fisher. Fisher was only concerned with items that required modifications during the assembly of the body. A good example is that you won’t find Telescopic column listed on the body tag. Although this is a major option, it did not require any special consideration during body assembly.

W 2LS 3C 4PUO 5W-

W = RPO A02 — Tinted Windshield only

L = RPO M20 — 4 Speed Manual Transmission
S = RPO U73 — Rear antenna

C = RPO B70 — Padded Dash

P = RPO Z01 — COMFORT AND CONVENIENCE GROUP (2 Speed Wipers, Washers, Day/Night Inside Mirror)
U = RPO P19 — Spare Wheel Lock
O = RPO L87 — Turbocharged Engine

W = RPO A49 — Custom Deluxe Front Seat Belts (Chrome Buckles, with Retractors)

Welcome to the Corvair Forum.
Your Corsa convertible is the top of the line with the optional turbo-charged engine. An estimated number of 2100 of the Corsa convertibles with the Turbo-Charged engine were made in 1965 - a very low production number for Chevrolet.
