Towing an 02

Our 1973 is painted and ready to come home.  Can a 2002 4speed be safely dolly towed for 5 miles?  Or must it be winched onto a flatbed?

Well I towed mine 900 miles on a dolly last year. It didn't break.

 

Yet.

The only thing I would worry about with that fresh paint job is kicking rocks up onto it from the towing vehicle.

I flat-towed my ‘70 about 15 miles, back in 1973, without apparent damage.

I dollyed my stick shift '73 home to Dayton from Wisconsin Dells WI--behind a U-Haul truck-- back in 2007 when the head gasket blew on the way home from Ofest.  None the worse for wear--and really improved my average gas mileage--500+ miles and didn't burn a drop of gas!

When I use the term “flat tow”, I mean with all four wheels on the ground! As in “no trailer”, “no dolly.”

And I'd be concerned about a cover beating on the new (or old) paint at highway speeds....
