I found these wheels/tires for sale.

Here is a chart I found:

It seems to indicate the same bolt pattern as full-size ford from 65-72. Can anyone tell me if I can run these on my wagon?
Thanks in advance.

It is most likely the same bolt pattern, but your main concern is the back spacing.  I seriously doubt a 2005 wheel will fit on a '72.  But, I don't know for sure.  What you have to do is get the backspacing measurements from both the 05 and the 72.  Now, if the 05 is a little deeper, you can get spacers to make it work if it isn't more than 1/2" or so.  That would be a beautiful wheel on that 72 Country Squire  if it works out.  Good Luck with it.

you can use spacer with the 05-08 wheels on stangs, they require adapters of about 1 1/2 inchs to not rub

He doesn't have a Mustang Steve, he has a country squire wagon.  A 1 1/2" spacer is a lot space to fill, and in my estimation a dangerous amount of bolt to add to the existing hub to make it work.

i know i was just giving an example of what a mustang owner has to do. i have 2001 bullit wheels(same back spacing as your mach1) they required a 1inch adapter. adapter are safe, spacers not so much.
