I'm pretty sure that was the case with all 4-speed cars in 1965, including
the B-bodies (don't know enough about the A-bodies to comment). The
factory stamped floor pan accommodated the 3-speed manual (column shift)
and the Torqueflite, but the floor had to be cut open and the "hump" added
to accommodate the shifter on the 4-speed.

64-66 A-body 4-speeds were made the same way.  The factory cut away 2 sections of the transmission tunnel, both in front and behind the torsion bar crossmember, and then added the 4-speed hump on top.  The part behind the crossmember was to clear the shifter, and the front part was cut to allow the shift rods to attach to the shift forks.  The rods actually pass above the original floor.
