The 215/70/14 will be a taller tire, probably by about an 1".

I had 60 series 14's on my '67 for awhile and they looked like a minature doughnut. Didn't care for the look.

My bad, I was looking at the height of a 235/60/14 @ 25.1"'s.

I have 14x7" Ralley wheels on my '67 with P205/70R14's on the front and P235/70R14's on the back. I find that the P205's fill the wheel well nicely but the P235's look small.

So I wouldn't recommend going over P215/70R14's.
Just my 2 cents worth -- 3.25 cents CDN
