Hello Ray,
As has  been discussed by previous posts to your question, the 60-63 
rear springs are too stiff to use with the '64 transverse rear spring.  
It has also been stated that '64 A/C cars have a cushion on top.  This 
cushion is nothing more than a spacer to raise up the rear of the car, 
compensating for the extra weight of the A/C equipment.  Clark's does 
sell new springs for the '64 convertible [C7545].  You may want to 
purchase these, but you will still need some kind of spacer.  You may 
also be able to add an additional or thicker spacer to lift the rear of 
your car using the existing springs.
