The 1964 Fairlane was completely restyled from the beltline down, yet retained enough resemblance to earlier models to be immediately recognizable as a fairlane. Gone were the traditional "high-canted fenders" (fins), with smoothly rounded fender tops taking their place. In place of fins, hood scoops were the current styling rage, both real and simulated, and all '64 Fairlanes carried a simulated hood scoop. The sides contained another simulated scoop on the quarter panel, just below the belt line.
The Fairlane data plate. is Iocated on the left front door lock face plate.
