Wrong answer. Block same, cylinders same, therefore no difference in
distance from exhaust port to exhaust port.

PS the difference was round vs oval muffler!

Well, 64 was the year the engine was stroked to 164 cid from 145 cid.  I
would assume that this spread the heads farther apart and necessitated the
modification of the crossover pipe to bridge the slightly longer distance
from one head (and therefore exhaust manifold) to the other.
