Hello! What a great group! A few years ago I owned a 64 Fleetwood Series 60 special and got hooked! I’m going to be looking for a 63/64 coupe early next year and am just looking for some pointers. I…Continue
"Don't listen to Kevin.
A Fleetwood can be nice. And having all optional equipment could also create extra repairs or parts. The less stuff = the less repairs.
Find a nice Series 62. It should have power windows and C/C (AC) and maybe electrical…"
When we bought our Fleetwood :-) for us, no air conditioning, was a deal breaker on a few cars.

"Alex, The AC on 1964's, unlike the 1963, is often problematic as these were the first every Production car with the automatic "Comfort Control". The systems are not that complex but have numerous components run from vacuum…"

I have resorted to pouring a little fuel into the carb to save the starter and battery. This gets it started and it runs fine. It also starts fine after sitting a short while - a couple hours or so.
