I have a '62 Bel Air and want it to pull a '27ft Airstream. Can the car handle the 3280lbs?
I have never had a hitch on the car and don't want any surprises. The trailer is a dual axle and the man I bought says it pulls great. I have a 327 and an aluminum powerglide. The rear end is stock 6cyl. stuff. It was originally a six. I would appreciate if anybody out there can recommend the right set up and provide any other advice. Thank-you very much.

I have to think that the car is too small to pull that. Try this link.

Ask the RYer's who should know these things. Be safe! Mark

i don't know where your haulin it-flats?hills?interstate? but I would bet your gonna overheat, ruin the rearend, ruin the tranny, and not be able to stop it because the brakes aren't nearly enough. Or some combination of all the above. in short, i wouldn't even think about it. go rent a big enough vehicle to haul it is my advice.

The power glide just wont hack it towing, manual drum brakes are scary without towing, would require special built tow hitch secured to the frame. Hate to discourage you but thats too much to tow with this car as it would look cool though.
