That isn't possible with an Upright.

No, there would be no problem towing.

Don, there are plenty of people offering all manner of parts and advice for those cars. They are relatively easy to find parts for and pretty simple to work on. Just make sure the gearbox oil is topped off and that the tires are not old and dry rotted.

Unfortunately FSOC still will not sell any parts to North America. The others are good though. I have bought a lot from small ford spares. Also you can add
