Only thing I can tell you is the 283 was a option in 1964 as well as an SS package. Might try some of the Nova/Chevy II forums.

Where did you get the date code? There's a trim tag on theffirewall or cowl on the driver's side. In the upper left corner of the trim tag there is the week and month of production. Example: B05 is the second week of May. From there you can also check the front of the engine for a date code and VIN. See if the stamping matches the car. There's probably 50 years of crud on it so you'll have to hunt for the codes. But they're there. HTH. -Jim
