They only made one shaper in 1963 – model 1340, which used various package model numbers depending on what options were included (43-205, 43-212 and 43-213). The recommended motors were 1 and 2 HP single phase and 1 and 3 HP three phase motors. Standard machines shipped with a 1 HP single phase motor, so your 5 HP is either an upgraded option from the factory or one that was installed by a PO.

A manual and more info can be found over at the vintagemachinery site. All the model numbers, options and accessories can be found in the 1963 Delta catalog.
