In addition to all the problems posted above with mounting point geometry and wheel bolt pattern, the 8.5 in the B-body wagons is several inches wider than the ones in the sedans, which are still wider than the 67 A-body axles, so unless you plan to have the tires sticking WAAAAY out of the wheel wells, this is a bad idea.
