If you are talking about the "Fox" platform mustang wheels then yes BUT only in the back and with spacers. The wheels have a 5 1/2 back spaceing that will get into the spring. you will need 1/4 spacers to run these wheels. I have slicks mounted up on mine and run the spacers. The tire still rubs the ebrake cable.

I have a set of 83ish Mutang 14 in GT wheels on my 1973 Runabout. You might not have to run the 1/4in spacer if you can run a 195/185 section width tire. Any thing bigger and they will rub the inner finders and spring e-brake cable clamp under side load and going in and out driveways. Have fun

I had the 16" wheels off the 88TC on the Wagon for a while, worked out alright, but the fronts kept rubbing the back of the fender in turns.
