"Super Turbine 400" was simply Buick's marketing name for the TH400 when first released in the 1964 model year. The other available automatic (the two speed used in the A-body) was called the Super Turbine 300. Rest assured that the original trans in the 64 Riv was a TH400. I have seen these personally, with the unique bellhousing. It's a TH400.
