Wanted to set something up for first generation SS owners.
The first factory installed 283 engines in Chevy IIs was 1964. Both the 195HP and 220 HP 283 CID engines were optional in any model of 1964 Chevy II, not just the SS. There were no factory V/8s In 1962 and '63, but both 283 and 327 engine packages could be dealer purchased and installed. Owners could also purchase these engine packages from dealers and install themselves. Because of the very high cost, it's believed very few of these installs were done.Does anyone know when GM started to offer the 283 as an option or as a standard engine?
