This leak is very typical and the fluid will gather at the lowest point on the pump and then drip onto the lower radiator hose. The rebuild kits are inexpensive and will contain a new o-ring that goes b/w the pump and reservoir as well as the gasket for the inside of the reservoir around the attachment bolts. The pump has an exceptionally long service life, unless run low on fluid. The repair is not difficult if you can handle removal and replacement of the ps pump assembly. I recommend getting the ps belt tightening tool from Bob Merritt for proper tensioning: http://www.simplexco.com/auto/psteer/1.html 1964 uses actual power steering fluid, not ATF. If it has ATF it should be flushed out. Modern ps fluid works fine.
if it's like the one on my 61's and 62's, there is a large o-ring that goes around the front of the pump that is supposed to seal the front lip of the reservoir. It usually is supplied in the rebuild kit.
