Hello, Hmnmm..that's strange! The minimum engine for the 1965 Impala SS was a 327. I therefore do not think yours is a SuperSport, but it depends on where it says it is one. Perhaps the engine was swapped out, or more likely, another replacement part was added from a SuperSport trim. CarGrrl

Hi before you post a reply to a question please do the research. Remember the Super sport option is a trim package not an engine package in the early to mid 60's. Best to check ID tag to see if a real SS or copy. Richard

You could have a Super Sport with a 6 cylinder if you ordered it that way.

Ok, old post, but I'll still post an answer so people will know... First, a 283 was a V8, not a V6. Second, They did indeed make a 1965 Impala with a 283. However, almost all of them were convertibles and/or sedans. They made VERY few hardtop coupes with the 283. Almost all hardtop coupes were SS's. It sounds like what the OP has/had is a very rare 65, non-ss, hardtop coupe, which someone has put SS badges on to make it look like an SS. BTW, when I say rare, they only made about 400 of them. I only know this because I had one twenty years ago... Hell, could be the same one, lol. Although mine had not been rebadged....
