Personally, I have never done it, but because of the 65 Z16 cars, I would bet a years pay that it is a bolt in swap.

A Mark IV big block will fit in the 64 with no problems. The 502, however, as with all Gen V big blocks, has an oil pan too large to fit in the chevelle. Moroso makes an oil pan for this application that solves that problem. I shoehorned a 502 in my 65 2dr wagon and I love it. More than enough power for the street, and a fairly smooth idle.
