Has anyone ever seen or heard of a vv towed by a mustang...at all? Luv em but am hesitant whether or not they are an acceptable tow car????? We want something totally different and radical to the usual tow car....my brother has seen six in a van park recently in far north Qld, all towing vintage vans but I have not heard or seen of any myself.....anyone else out there heard any snippets? Ho hummm...back to trying to choose paint colours for the van interior....what a pain in the butt when I love so many colours!!!!! Cheers J

Weeelll! I think they are awesome looking beasts - although our vv is a Franklin 59er (we think) and were hoping that someone else also towed their v van with the same sort of car! Hoping that its weight (the van) won't be too much of a problem for a mustang! Maybe Kenworth73 will read my query also and tell us what he thinks??? Thank you Don Ricardo, as always you reply promptly to all our inane questions! Have a lovely evening - kind regards J
I don't see why a Mustang would have any towing limitations........after all it is built on a Ford Falcon platform.
Fibreglass fantasia!....1 Sunliner, a Carlight Continental plus one for spares (fibreglass roof & ends)...... also a late 30's masonite van plus a 52 homemade plywood......also a 58 Millard with Jones wheel and a Fibreglass Kennedy lookalike awaiting a brand/name ................. EH Premier S/Wagon & '54 FORD Skyliner V8 for my towcars.

Verrry nice cars boys! ;D Thank you for posting the pics Don R - Regards J

Yes Dave...I think that is what we shall do before committing ourselves. Have no idea the weight of the van as yet. I have cut up the wooden "double" mattress framework which weighed a ton! As does the table which is not original. Plus a heavy overhead laminated benchlike thing over the bed at the back of the van that was held in place with chrome poles & huge long bolts & a ton of washers! Heavy as! Goodness knows why they thought 4 x 4 wood framework for under the mattress was the go - an elephant could rest on it and not make a dent!!! And they built it all within the small space of the bed area & there was no way we could get them out in one pce! So thinking that will make a huge difference in the overall weight...hopefully! Guessing it could weigh in around 800kg. So a 289 standard mustang seems like it could be a winner...although the boy has been looking at camaro's - told him he is dreamin'......he just smiles serenely...oh dear! Don't like that look! Painting interior will begin when the temp goes up....brrrrrr Regards J
