I don't know about that... having a complete list with production variants can be interesting - especially given that production of the series was cut-off well before it was complete.

Does this mockup represent a totally different aircraft from the MB.500 T3 or is it a derivative of that 1938 trainer?

Here is a small Info about MB.164 & MB.165,which I thin they were a Projects ?;

The second was originally a grand raid version of the MB-160 but in the end, the designation MB-162 planned for this aircraft which made its first flight in the spring of 1940 was attributed to a bomber declination of the MB-160 and as the designation MB-163 designated a maritime reconnaissance version of the MB-162 (two prototypes) and that the designation MB-164 was reserved for a VIP transport version, it is the designation MB-165 that this aircraft received.

Two prototypes were ordered by the Air Force in December 1942 and delivered in May 1943 for six months of intensive testing. It was therefore in November 1943 that the Air Force decided to order 36 Bloch MB-165s, but Bloch being very busy with other aircraft, it was not until July 1944 that the first aircraft series are delivered, the entire order being fulfilled in September 1945.

Hesham: be careful... this is not real ! I know that blog author, Clausewitz. A nice fellow, not a hoaxer by any mean. But this is alternate history, not real. https://clausuchronia.wordpress.com/

That doesn't mean anything in that link is actual information, as opposed to fiction.
