1968 ford Thunderbird lug nut torque

Im trying to rotate the wheels on my 68 Thunderbird and I cannot find the torque specs for the lug nuts. The lug nuts are 13/16 on the stock 15 inch steel wheels with a 5x114.3 bolt pattern. Any help is appreciated.

Probably the best would be to look in the Ford car shop manual for 1968. I don't have one. But Ford often shows torque specifications in their shop manuals based on the size of the bolt/stud. If you state the stud size I can give you the torque shown in another Ford shop manual which I do have. The closest I have is the 1970 truck manual.
