Hello everyone, I too have just joined this forum with a view to finding the Portafold of my dreams, and no, I hadn't been at the strong cheese that night....
I shall be towing it with my very original 1972 Triumph Dolomite Automatic.
Before fitting the bracketry and the electrics, I shall need to source and fit a transmission cooler as these BW65s, although very tough little gearboxes, will overheat when the cars are used for towing, even something that light!
But I doubt that the car (weight 907Kg) will even notice that there's something attached to its rear end since that good old Ricardo/Saab/Triumph slant four has the thick end of 100bhp and, more importantly for this towing lark, loads
Expect me to ask lots of questions (some of them possibly quite silly, but I'm new)
of you before I settle for a van of my own. Ideally, I don't want something that's anything like perfect, I'd actually enjoy having a restoration to get stuck into since this car was bought, sight unseen, last year, has so far covered 9000 miles with me, with no trouble at all and, worst bit of all, has absolutely no rot to test my restoration fetish!
