I'd guess too tall of a tire and saggy shocks. According to what I can find, the tires should be 195's, not 205. Albeit, there's not that much if a difference between the two, but if the rear is low all ready, the extra 10 MM could be biting you in the butt. Second possibility is a bad offset on the rims. If they are aftermarket, they could be sitting a hair too wide. A good tire shop can probably help steer you in the right direction. Most of the 60's Fairlanes had some pretty tight tolerances for wheels from what I remember. I won't mention what a friend did with a pair of vice grips to get a set of G series on the back of his 67... it was horrible.
