original 340HP BUT in a 1964 ? ? ?

I owned a 1964 Corvette convertible with a 340HP engine (NOT 360HP) FROM THE FACTORY with a 4.56 ratio rear end. Have you ever seen any others with a supposedly original 340HP (NOT a 1963).

I'm a former editor in the late 1970's early 80's of a Corvette monthly magazine, and author of, at one time, probably the nation's number one restoration manual on 1953 - 1967 Corvettes. So I'm not making up this information about the 340HP in the 64. I'm just wondering if anyone else has experienced this (possibly a VERY EARLY 1964). Trying to find one EXACTLY like the one we had, and of course, finding a 340HP, 1964 model has become basically IMPOSSIBLE. My wife and I are wondering if maybe we were both crazy?
