Looking to buy these Torque 2 wheels and tires. I have a 67 disk/drum stock suspension. Will these fit? If not what will have to be done to work?

Re: looking to buy these wheels will they fit okay

Rear looks good but in my opinion, 4" is not quite enough in the front and a 245 tire is already pushing it. Maybe someone else with a '67 will chime in as I can't verify this as fact but just based on what I have had in the past on a '69. I used to run 4.25" on a 7" rim on the front with a 235. Now run an 8" rim with 4.75" backspace.

4" b/s on a 7" wide wheel should be fine,the 245/45 might be pushing it a tad,you'd probably be safer with a 235/45...it'll be close but should work.
