Well, since nobody's helping out here, maybe I can at least give you some info.  I can't address your specific circumstances, but I can tell you what I've got under my '72.  Now, I'm running 15 inch rims, rather than 14s, but I can tell you that 15/50/235s on 7" rims fit just fine up front.  In the back I've got some 15/60/235 Mickey Thompson drag radials, also on 7" rims.  This setup gives me a slight nose-down rake that looks thoroughly badass.  Anyway, hope you can get something useful out of that...

hi on my 77 wagon i have 195/60/14 on the front and 235/60/14 on the rear with a stock supension. you would have to change out the front springs or some orther mods to raise the front i would think.the 235s fit on the front but rub as soon as you turn the wheels this sizes work well going though turns and bumps in the road. good luck chris
