I think I know the answer to this but I will ask anyway...I have owned a 1967 122 sedan for 23 years of which the car has been in storage for 18. It is in excellent condition and has only 107,000 miles and was purchased from the original owner. The vehicle is in Oregon but I live in Alaska. I am finally at a point to bring it to Alaska. It will need some work to make the trip but I don't anticipate anything major. I am pondering the purchase of a small trailer to pull behind the car. At this time it does not have a trailer hitch. The trailer I intend to pull will weigh approximately #1500. Am I crazy to attempt this? Does anybody know the tow rating capacity of the 122? I imagine a hitch will have to be custom but I am not even sure where it would mount? I realize it could be a real desecration to the car. Am I crazy? Thanks in advance for your objective advice, Iguana

In my mind if it is a one-shot tow, it might not be that bad. I think regular towing duty would be the death of a classic.

OR...

Rent a moving van, put your stuff in it, and tow the 122! (I know, I couldn't afford to do it either)

**EDIT** 18 years?!?! I'm gonna have to stick with option 2.
