We have a 1963 Bambi and pull ours with a 1963 Ford F100 4 X 4. We do have a "replacement" engine, however, in ours. My husband says you can probably pull yours with your 84 but you should get a load leveler hitch and a anti-sway friction device. The literature from our 1963 Bambi said our original tongue weight for our trailer was 180 pounds. I would expect yours to be similar. A tranny cooler would also be a good idea.

Be sure you check the tires and grease the wheel bearings on the trailer before towing! Naturally, you will want to be able to hook up your electric brakes with a controller.

How far will you be towing your "new" Bambi? If only a short distance and not on freeway, etc. you might be able to get it home without all the "goodies". But, once camping, be sure to check what others have.

Good luck! Post some pics of your new Bambi. We love to see pictures here!

Nice looking rig rbrown... Back in the 70's I had a 1969 Mustang convert, and later a 1970 Boss 302. The Boss came with the tough close ratio top loader 4 speed and the super heavy duty, 31 spline 9" Nodular rear end. I would speculate that the 9" rear could easily handle a very large Airstream and is still a favourite choice for the big block hot rod builders today.
Airstreams..... The best towing trailers on the planet!

I think they want to tow it, not put it in the bed.
