Did the 64 or 65 Fairlane or Torino (if available then, not sure about the Torino) ever come out with a 289 K-code/Hipo?

Yes John.
Fairlane was the first car to get the 289 Hipo.
63, 64, and 65 Fairlanes were available with 289/271 Hipo option.

The only year the Falcon shared the Torino body is in 1970. They made a 70 1/2 Falcon to tie over until the 71 Maverick.

What kind of quarter mile times did the early Fairlanes put up?

The FALCON started sharing the FAIRLANE platform in 1966. It was just skinned differently.

The 70 1/2 FALCON was a base model FAIRLANE as FORD dropped the origional FALCON in the mid-1970 model run with the introduction of the MAVERICK.

It depended on the equipment. They were as fast as 14's with the 428 CJ,and probably in the 17-18's with a 6 cylinder.
