As you have the bolt then why not measure the threads per inch (TPI)?

1964 sounds a little early for it to be UNF so what is the TPI of this 5/16" bolt?

A thread gauge will only cost you a few quid and is invaluable for this sort of thing. Together with a cheap digital caliper you can be sure about what you're dealing with.
