I see you haven't gotten any replies - I think the Comet frame will fit, but let me check my service manual to make sure.
I also have a '64 Futura convertible, and I think the main differences with the Comet is the sheet metal, interior etc. I'm not at my shop where the manual is, but why would Ford/Mercury go to the expense of tooling up for two different convertible frames?

The 64 - 65 Comet is the same. There are some differences though between 63 and 64/65. Check the header bow carefully before buying, they are prone to rust where the header bow meets the side frame. Not sure where you are located, but I have a complete 64 convertible top frame without a header bow. I am in upstate NY.
