While this sort of thing sometimes changes from year to year, on my 64, the negative cable connects to the A/C bracket, which in turn connects to the water pump. Not sure on a non-A/C car, I did find this pic from a 64 I saw at a car show. You can see the not so original zip ties holding the neg cable to the heater hoses before it disappears under one of the hoses and the terminal shows at the water pump. It is using a stud with two nuts to attach it there, which would make sense. You could remove the cable without disturbing the water pump 'bolt'. And Big Dave is right about the paint/powder coating on stuff. I had some wonky issues with my headlights as I assembled my car. Turned out to be all the powder coating on the radiator support giving a poor ground to the headlights. Easy fix, once you figure it out
