Replacing the boot/trunk harness is a real pain - worse and more time
consuming than the main harness IME, and that on a 79.  On a 64 the
difference should be even more marked.  As well as what you can see the
insulation will be melted inside both looms, and if it got hot enough to
melt adjacent wires as well they could be very close to touching too.  There
should only be one red wire in the boot/trunk loom so it is no big deal to
bypass that.  Likewise from the switch in the main loom.  Join them to the
red wire to the front in a 4-way bullet connector by the bunch of them where
the bulkhead joins the inner wing in the engine compartment.  If you get no
other problems then a full loom replacement can wait until you 'get a round
