That’s cool, but I’m pretty sure that the code starts with 58 or 57 not 64.

This T is a 64 model, all tail numbers with 5 digits on the -135s are 64 models. All of of the 64 models start with 14, instead of just a 4. I worked on Rs and Ts at McConnell for 13 years ('91-'04), and we had a number of 64 models there at the time.
I agree with heyeng, it is a FY 1964 model.
Nice pic, though.
Awsome love the 134th I also spot at ktys hope to get a picture of one one day

T models were A/C that were specially built to refuel the SR-71. Their offload tanks had a cap in place of the valve that tied the rest of the A/C fuel system to the off load tanks. The SR had a special fuel which was a gel base and was not compatible with JP-4. The R models could fill the A/C feed tanks from the offload tanks. The R model upgrade included the new engines.

This KC-135 (64-14832) is an "R", it never was a "T".
