They only list a 3 3/4 inch back space for the 15 x 7 American racing torque thrust II wheel
Yup -- looks like the Jegs site is only listing 3+3/4 backspace on the "505" series 15x7 TT2's You could probably make these work, but the rim WILL be pushed out towards the fender a bit, which may limit what size tyres you can run without interference. (This will depend on your suspension a bit as well). 4" or 4.25" backspace would play better on a 15x7 wheel. (I ran 4" backspace 15x7 rallys with 235/60R15's for a while with only an occasional very slight rub up front when the wheel was at full lock)

Summit Racing lists a 15x7 TT2 with a 4" backspace as "ARE-405576140", but it costs more (maybe a custom backspace ordered through Summit?) I also prefer Summit's website for searching on this kind of stuff (but have bought from both Jegs & Summit quite happily):

Looks like they also have some other TT derivatives with 15x7 and 4" backspace

Alternatively, you should be able to run 15x8's with 4.5" backspace just fine. This would let you run a wider tyre out back and should work just fine on a '69. If you're sold on the TT2's, this would probably be my choice with 225's up front and maybe 255's out back.

Aren't 15's (tires) harder to find? Maybe going with a larger rim would give you more options. I am running AR TTII's on my 69. 17x8 up front w/4.75 BS and 235/45/17 tires. Rear is 17x9.5 w/5.5 BS and 275/40/17 tires. Under "post your wheels" about the third post down Brian Lewis has a picture of his car and info. Mine is the same as his.

Someone named roadman said he ran these 15x7 3 3/4 back space wheels on his 68 coupe with BFG p235/15 on all 4 with no problems. He posted pic in a old thread for me. I also need to know if these TT II wheels will work with 4 wheel drum brakes?
