The number 9 means automatic transmission the V means V8 283. The 232568 following the 9V is the last 6 serial numbers of the car or truck the engine was installed in from the factory.

In 62, the only 283 available in a car was a 170HP 2 barrel, the fact it has those "serial" number stampings on it means it was in a Canadian car, US cars with 283's did not have those numbers in 1962.
