The bolt pattern is most likely the same; 5x4.5 on
the Ford. The backspacing is another matter. Early
Mustang wheels had 4.625" backspacing if they were
7" wide. They also had a bore diameter of 71.5 mm.
The only way to know for sure if they will fit is to
compare the other measurements.

The Plymouth has lug bolts instead of studs, but I
believe they're 1/2 inch dia., and will still fit the
Ford lug holes.
