15" spare fit?

2 part question:

Will a 15" Spare tire fit in the engine compartment?

What GM car had a 15" wheel that I can use for my spare?

Thanks

I bought a T125/70 D15 and a 4" wide 15" wheel to use as a spare.

Diameter is 24.75"
with the wheel I bought it is about 7lbs lighter than the full-sized spare I did have in there.

FWIW.

Enjoy the Corvair!
