Mustang Hitch

I've never seen this before, found the picture while researching body shops that could help me with my sheet metal issues. I doubt it was a factory option, but it's neat looking all the same!

Yes, I have seen them on Mustangs and on Mavericks.

I had one on a Maverick-I towed a generator one time and every time I got on the gas the front end lifted off the ground.

"I love my Hookers!" and "Get some Strange" probably have a different connotation to non automotive enthusiasts!

they have been around, see the thread below a 71-73 Mustang towing a boat.

If you read through you will see pictures of Mike's Mustang (Ole Pony) with the hitch that I bought from him to add to my car in the future, when I make my custom trailer.

I have one if anyone wants it........

It is still on the convertible that we plasma cut in half.

I do not want to really know what they towed with a convertible but I hope it was light.

I use to pull a 14 foot runabout boat with the 73 convert. The boat had 4 seats and would pull one skier. I eventually graduated to larger boats and bought a Dodge Tradesman 300 SuperVan to pull the boat and camp in. One of those home made conversion vans with the shag carpet! Big Grin
