Is the ground cable from the battery to the engine supposed to go through the two cable straps below the starter solenoid, one of them or none of them?

None of them. The cable goes to a bolt that resides on the block about half way between the head and pan, far forward. The starter cable runs in the straps.

64 1/2 cars routed the negative battery cable through a dedicated clip that mounted to the battery apron down near the frame rail. However, that clip went away in 65 production. 65 and 66 cars routed the negative cable through one plastic strap on the battery apron.

Yep, you guys are right. I just checked my Osbourn Electrical manual and it's shown going through the strap. Got to fix mine now :)
