Ambulance as Tow Vehicle
The TownCoupe' that I'm currently using has a 2.72-1 ratio/open axle. I have another unit(78 Tcpe) with the 3.25-1 TractionLok,4wdisc-antilock. The Lower ratio(3.25) pulls stronger,but I'm only pulling 7500#. When I get the 34" Limited this fall I will have the traction-lok car equipped with fuel injection, multi spark ignition,hotter compression ratio,and an under-drive on the C-6. With a load not exceeding 7500# it does well in stock form. Mileage is about the same as unloaded. I have the Holley square bore 4160 carb with a LOT of miles on it. I used to tow with a Lincoln a long time ago and wanted a heavy vehicle that my collie was happy with. For $455 on E-bay I couldn't pass it up. ClimateControl,dual power seats,smooth ride, it was a no brainer. I added the CargoCoils and a good set of HDshocks and it does fine. I'm also considering a 20"Argosy MH as a tow vehicle for the Limited34'. But I'm not thrilled with the longevity of the 454 chevy of that vintage.
