Sway control and weight distribution for a 50's Flying Cloud ?


I'm looking for a Flying Cloud, an old FC (50's or early 60's) but do I have to use a weight distribution and a sway control to tow it ?
I have a little car (its weight is 4000 lbs) and it can tow 2800 lbs.
My other doubt is about the hitch weight, normally, for my car, the maximum is 180lbs on it but I can higher this limit with the weight distribution, isn't it ?
What do you think about it please, any experience ?

Thanks a lot.

Kind regards,
