Towing classic pickup. Classic Toad??

We want to take our 1964 GMC pickup with us when we hit the road. Has anyone seen this done?

I know that I will need a driveshaft disconnect. But the towbar is the big question. Am I going to have to build my own baseplates? That's not out of the question. I'm pretty handy and I do still own a welder and cutting torch. LOL

My drive train will consist of a chevy 283 v-8, a 700R4 automatic trans, and a rear differential from an 1984 Suburban.

I can't comment on your truck, but in general, most trucks of that era had "real" bumpers and mounts. You can probably attach directly to the frame extensions that mount the bumper. I had an 88 Bronco II that I towed for many years this way using a Reese universal tow bar and brackets.
