The factory never had AC for that vintage.
It would have been dealer installed hang on AC if that was available.

Which is the way I would go anyway. Two holes have to be drilled for lines that lead from the engine compartment.

The AC unit for a period correct look would be like attached.
This has the evaporator, fan and controls for the system. Requires two lines from the engine compartment to this unit.
This unit bolts to the bottom of the instrument panel.

This specific unit is on Ebay for $550, which seems rather high. But everything is high right now.
In the upper left you can see the cut lines
At least one electrical connector is seen as well.
Blower fan is in the back
Provisions for condensate drain would need to be made too so that would be additional hole(s)

yea i thought about that earlier but if i get an aftermarket it would have heat and ac in one compact unit and it would all fit under the dash and find some period correct vents to put in dash of sorts

They don't appear to specifically list a kit for a '64 Fairlane tho' I suspect they'd be happy to configure a builder kit; does include options for a heater...
