64 Catalina suspension height

I have a 64 catalina i bought off a guy and it was sitting pretty low and i asked him if he had it lowered or if the guy he brough *** from had it lowered he said no but my father seems to disagree. Every pic i see they sit pretty low and im not sure what to make of it I wanna put new parts on the suspension but im affraid it will raise the car if put OEM springs on it and i like the low stance. Someone please help
