Yep, all of the above is correct. Iron 'til 61, then alum in 62. Even though iron and alum are PG, both are totally different. Basically, the only value to this old timer is for someone who needs to restore a vehicle with an iron PG. You will not have much luck finding a buyer that will pay much. And it is also correct that V-8s and 6s used a different adapter between the engine and (iron) PG.
The only question left, is, what did the 62 6cyl engines use for a PG? Was it the 61 style iron, or a special version alum for 62 only 6cyl engines????? The 6 in 62 was the last year for this engne. The 63-later 6 was a TOTALLY redesigned engine which had the same bolt pattern on the rear of the block for a bell housing as a V-8 (also, 63-later 6s used the same flywheels as V-8s).
