Chevelle vin problem

Hey guys I am having a problem figuring out this vin number as you can see from my name I am a pontiac guy always dealt with GTOs but I just purchased a 72 chevelle big block 454 I am trying to figure out if it is a true chevelle SS or just a malibu clone or even if the motor is matching # or not I doubt it. I dont know much about chevelles but the car was to good to pass up so its time to learn a little. So any information would be appreciated guys I tried to find a website but I spent the last 2 hours getting more confused. Thanks in advance for your help.

Vin number is 1D36F2B632333

I think the 1 =chevy and D= malibu if I am not mistaken just have no idea what the hell the rest means
