Your rear springs are most likely weak and need replacement.

at one time i had a641/2 that had the same problem it is in the rear there are two resolutions for this problem
1. replace springs (wich will cost you and someday will break down again)
2.air shocks (affardable adjustable and permanent)

I have a 73 Javaline that had the same problem with he lower springs getting a little week and I installed slightly taller tires on the rear than on the front. Car looks and drives great but you can't rotate your tires if you do this.

Check with your local Ford dealer about the new springs, you may be surprised to find they are available and affordable. Often people believe that the Dealer is ripoff city but not always. Many aftermarket parts sellers get their parts over the counter at their local Ford/Chevy/whatever dealer just like you could. The trick is finding a cooperative parts man who will look that old stuff up for you!
I love technology.
