Help with Choosing Vintage

O.K. what ever I decide to do with my 2007 Classic I'm going to start looking for a small vintage unit to restore. I would like something that is light enough to tow with a 4.0 Ford Ranger. any help or suggestions will be greatly appreaciated.

What is the Ford Ranger 4.0 rated to tow? We need to know that before we can give you any recommendations.

Max towing capacity of a Ranger is 5000 pounds. That would seem to give you lots of options in the vintage world, given that 25' trailers from the 70s have a dry weight right around 4000 lbs.
