It has always been my understanding - since I was 13 in 1963 - that the '63 1/2 Galaxie had the new "fastback" C pillar compared with the previous "Thunderbird" C pillar - which I believe was continued along with the fastback until the end of the model run. The '64 hardtops all had the fastback roof. I doubt that you could tell by the VIN.

The 1963 1/2 Fords were new rooflines available in 3 models, the first hardtop Falcons and Fairlanes as well as the fastback hardtop Galaxie.
