video showcasing parts CaddyDaddy has for the 64 engines, which should be the first year for the 429 OHV V8 (7L) making 340 hp (gross) 480 lb-ft of torque.

Wikipedia notes some early 64s got the prior 390 cubic inch V8 until supply ran out.

I loved the 429 my parents and I had 4 of them.  

I did not know that the 390 was used for half the year, but now I know why the Hydromatic was used for half the year, it was most likely paired with the 390, and the Turbo-Hydromatic with the 429.  This was the year they stopped the PNDLR configuration and went to the PRNDL shift pattern.   I rebuilt a 429 during the summer of 1974 while working a summer job at Sun Shipbuilding and Drydock as a mechanic and did it on the ground on my back.  It was a 66 Coupe Conv and I drove it back to college.   I look at all of the room in that engine bay and remember how easy they were to work on.
