'64 hubs vs '65 hubs... Interchangeable?

So I have a '65 Riviera with bad drums. I found a set of '64 drums with hubs that I haven't bought yet. My question - are '65 and '64 hubs interchangeable?

If you are using original `65 wheels the wheels may not slip over the nose of the `64 hub. The nose of the `64 hub is a larger diameter than the `65.

I recently sold a set of `65 hubs/drums to a `64 owner who needed a drum and planned to convert to `65 mag wheels. The buyer claimed he had to machine the drums to make them work because they were hitting the backing plate. I didnt have a chance to inspect the car to see what was going on so I took his word for it. I was/am under the impression, except for the size of the nose of the hub, the `64 and `65 hub/drum combo should be interchangeable.

Has anyone done such swap? I dont currently own a `64, otherwise I would check, but I am curious. Hope this helps Ryan,
