Dave,
I would like to have one, don't really need one at the moment but if it helps to order one in order for them to make a batch that will be great. Yes it will be a 'collectors item' but a mounted one and I will use it, actually the whole car is a collectors item, LoL. Of course depending a bit on the price but yes sign me in for it too.
regards
ron

I would be interested but I feel torn between an original or hidden hitch attached to the frame rather than the bumper. My reasoning is that attaching it to a bumper allows you to kick it when getting in and out of the trunk. A hidden hitch allows you to remove the ball hitch when not in use. It also could cause bumper distortion if hit by the trailer /boat when loading. Just things to consider, but of course this is what they used in the day.

I have mailed the Swedish Squarebird club, and they will have a notice in our next "member-magazine". Not much of a magazine realy, but still....
Will take a while before I can have any number. But anyway, I want one, if the price is realistic.

There is one of these 1958-60 Squarebird hitches for sale on Ebay now. It is a used one that needs replating....

Thumbs up

That's pretty cool Pete!

Looks like someone else "made their own" out of another similar type hitch. Over many years ago too....
