Does anyone know if there is another rear backing plate that would match the 64? Thanks rob

I'm guessing but I would say a 1963.

The same rear end was used from 1955-'64 though the axles do not interchange on a 1955-'56 with the 1957 and up I suspect that has more to do with the original axle size than design; as you can go backwards and put 1957-'64 pumpkin and axles into a 1955 housing. I don't believe there are any of the smaller 1955-'56 axles left in the world as they broke behind a 265 SBC V8.

So yes I am pretty sure the backing plate off of a 1955 rear will fit onto your 1964.
