Which car hauler?


Recommended Posts

Quick back story,  I inherited my late brother's 65 Tempest and began work on it several years ago but had to stop due to funds and military duty.  I found this forum as a great resource so far as im a 30yo new school Mustang student and dont know much about the old school stuff other than the basics.   Im about to go drag it back to Texas and do a restomod but cant figure out which flat car hauler to get.   It seems an 18' would get it done but a 20' would guarantee it to fit.   Any suggestions?   Thanks!

Better to have it and not need it, than to need it and not have it. I'd go with the bigger of the 2.

What are you towing it with?

Enclosed or open?

65 Tempest would start around 3400 lbs so that would be where I would start.

Using my F150 4x4 with a 5.4

I just dont want to buy a trailer and the car not fit. Definitely going with open as I can use it as a utility trailer if needed.

20' is definately, I believe that the Ford should tow around 9000 lbs so you are good there.

Featherlite makes great trailers but expensive.

A little less expensive but I have found they have a larger dealer nextwork so easier to get work done.

I would look into renting a UHAUL. Pick one up @ nearest Uhaul to the car. Can be dropped off @ nearest location by your house. They don't make good utility trailers. JUSTA to big. And it dont have sides for utility. Save your $$$ for the project. Justa my .02
