You'll need 1" spacers

Fitting 315's on the '66

Posting deleted. Looks like you either missed the deal, or got them?
Year One carries billet Magnums that bolt right up to early cars, but with a hefty price tag.

Those wheel specs are very common and match what I'm running with 1" spacers. If the wheels came with tires (couldn't see the listing) then I can almost guarantee you'll need to change those as I think they come with 245/55/17 from the factory which is to tall up front for your '66. They may even be a little to tall for the rear depending on your ride height.

I just looked up tires for an '04 Mach 1 on Tirerack.com out of curiosity and you're right, OEM was 245/45/17. Could be that the different sets of wheels I kept looking at had aftermarket tires.

I had to run a custom spacer on my setup to get the wheels in the fender where I wanted them. I have grenada spindles and SN95 disk brakes though. It was right around 1" which jives with what was said already.

I don't recommend using spacers, but they should be fine if not racing the car.
Use a 1'' spacer on front, this gives you 4.72'' backspace which is what you want.
On the back you can use a 1'' spacer or a 1/2'' spacer, I would use a 1/2'' because it will give you 5.23'' backspace which will center the wheel away from the fender lip better plus less stress on longer studs. 2 Billet Wheel Adapters Spacers 5x4 5 to 5x4 5 1 00" 1 2" Studs 5 Lug | eBay
2 Pcs 1 2" Thick 5x4 5 5x4 7 5 Wheel Spacers Heavy Duty Billet 5LUG 19mm | eBay

Then figure out how long of rear studs you need, I would use arp studs.

I would run 1" up front and 1-1/4" rear. eBay has tons of billet spacers for cheap that have proven reliable over and over again.
