would be a nice combination Lincoln TV & AS

Would be nice to tow the AS with my 1962 Lincoln, but there is no hitch.
Bad luck

Check Draw-Tite and U-Haul websites for a hitch that could be added to your vintage Lincoln.

In 1962, my father put me in the driver's seat for my first highway driving lesson in one of these cars. It was the widest car since the 30s. The on coming gasoline tanker on a very narrow two lane bridge made my father inhale deeply and cancel the teaching exercise on the other side of the bridge. I was given to a driving instructor in a more modest sized vehicle.

nmayer1,

I agree a great tow vehicle, but you will need to have a custom hitch manufactured. Use someone who is familiar with unibody cars for the hitch. Check out the Lincoln Forum, Ford published information on how to manufacture the hitch and someone recently posted the pamphlet there.

Welcome to the forums.

Very nice American pair you have there.

A hitch could be added, just find a good welder/fabrication shop.

Regards,

JD
