This F1 tornado has a short path length of 2 miles with a width of 440 yards. Storm Data states this tornado developed 9 miles ENE of Freedom in Woods County, OK. A farmstead had a great deal of damage. The garage was demolished. Pieces of a toolshed and bard were “strewn over a wide area.”
Storm Data also mentions that a home had its roof removed, a windmill tower was twisted around three times and driven into the ground, tree limbs and power lines were downed.
I found one newspaper article possibly mentioning this event. It was discovered in the November 16, 1964 edition of the Daily Oklahoman. A report of a tornado about 19 miles NW of Alva, which is in Woods County. A Mr. Bird Bates said there was damage to a small shed, a fence and knocked down power lines. There was debris all across the road. Here is the clip:
