They are option codes to alert the final assembly line that certain mods are required to make them fit; i.e., the rear antenna code means there's going to be a hole in the rear quarter panel and an antenna goes in the hole.

W ~ Tinted windshield [RPO A02]
2 ~ 2nd option group
M ~ Powerglide auto trans [RPO M35]
S ~ Rear antenna [RPO U73]
3 ~ 3rd option group
C ~ Padded dash [RPO B70]

14 ~ if this is a hand stamped number it's real reason is unknown but speculation is it's a number identifying the body cradle from Fisher Body and used for quality control.

What year and plant, maybe 1964 Atlanta?

Re: acc codes on cowl tag

At least I correctly guessed the year. I do have one other Van Nuys 64 tag with the number 15 stamped like the rest of the info after the group codes but out of the 10 I have samples of it's the only one with a number like this. It's body date is 11B but have one 11A and 11C without the number. Anybody's guess I suppose at this point.
