I have been researching the same idea, as far as I can see unless they are stick cars you would have to pull the driveshaft or install backwards which is not really recommended. Lets see what others have to say.

the 36 coupe and the 65 mustang are standard transmission the 56 bel air is auto and I don't think I would want to tow backwards Bob

when i purchased my 65 mustang i towed it on a dolly behind my 26' class c which i have sold now. it was only rated to tow 3500lb and had the smaller 5.7 chevy engine, but towed the mustang with ease.

was your 65 a standard and if so did you tow front wheels on dolly and in neutral and did you have any problems with 65 mustang tranny. Its all original and I do not want %$&#@ the tranny thanks Bob

This mustang is an automatic, so i discoinnected the rear of drive shaft and zipped tied it out the way, very easy to do on the old mustangs. The 65 i had before this one was stick shift with a 5 speed conversion, although i never towed it rving with us, i did have occasion to tow it a couple of times on breakdowns. (both fuel pump related) and it towed with front wheels on the dolly just fine. all 3 towing trips were with front wheels on dolly, no steering lock, and no extra brakes. i have heard people say that you shouldnt tow rear wheel drives on tow dolly encase it accidently falls into gear, but i find it very hard to imagine this could happen.... but then i have been wrong before.

Check your tranny on the classics. Some were towable w/rear wheels down, depending on trans and if it had a front pump or not.....

I agree with the car trailer. Less chance of possible damage. [inATTACH]70056[/ATTACH]
