5 - 1965
06 - June ?
63 - Hull #63 out of about 200 built?

Anyone know this for sure?

That is not a HIN it is a number chosen and configured by the builder. HIN/MIC's were not required in the US until 1971. Only the original builder can tell you or maybe an owners association.
You can find a complete explantion of HIN's here.

The hysterical laughter you hear as you drive a way in your"new" boat ..... is the seller.
