A 14x7 wheel will clear fender, if the offset is not to negative or positive. Many wheels are built w/ a positive offset for front wheel drive. You may run in to a bigger problem with the drums accommodating the wheels. Common areas of interference are the drums balancing weights, the contour of the drum, and the swedging or raised area at wheel studs. Best to allow a tire/wheel dealer recommend and source the wheels. If the wheels don't fit, then they have to accept a return. Wheels should always be test fitted before a tire is mounted. The tire dealer will also be able to sell you the proper size and load range tire.

not any aluminum wheels were made in 63,your best ber would be to find a set of 66 mustang GT 14 x 7 to put on it,with the centers and bands and a set of white letter tires,it would look great,or the 66 magmun wheels,bothare still findable and will fit your car.

A fairly old thread,but--I"ve had good luck,with Nissan,and Toyota alloys-as they,too,are 4 on 4 1/2 bolt pattern,and you can find them,in the 15 inch size,also...

The Mustang GT wheels wont fit as they are 5 lug. There were some 14 x 6 stock wheels in the 4 x 4.5 lug, but they were only on the 70 Maverick as best I can remember. If you don't care about stock appearance, then yes, old Datsun wheels work.
