Nope, but I removed a big honkin' hitch from a 71 300 once.

I've done a ton of towing with '72 T & C and '73 Custom Sub wagons,
and a '77 Gran Fury... all hauling a loaded 2 horse trailer or a 19'
Starcraft Islander Cuddy Cabin, 3 kids and the wife. The '72 was a 440,
the '73 a 400 and the '77 a 360. All of them did a great job. I found
that air shocks were a big plus on the '77. We were always the only
ones at horse shows using a car as a tow vehicle. We eventually went to
an '79 D-200 then a '87 RamCharger, the RamCharger was better on a
muddy field   Must have pics around somewhere...

I don't have a picture of it but i wish i did..... I towed my 71' 340 Duster from Winnipeg to Calgary (825 miles) and the car never missed a beat. No overheating,10 mpg, and all at about 55 mph to be on the safe side.

 I needed those air shocks, 2 horses at 1200# each plus the
trailer at maybe 1000# made for a heavy load and tongue weight. The
boat rig was slightly lighter at around 2400#. I shoulda had electric
brakes on those but didn't, never had a problem however.

I towed our Coleman Willianmsburg with a M Body Fifth Avenue and a '79 'doba.  I have some pictures of those, but no Cs.

Although it is not mine..... Here's a picture of Gene Snows famous LO23 68' Hemi Dart,hooked up and on the trailer behind a "C". Interesting story on the Dart. After it was thrashed,it was found in a junkyard years ago and now it is totally restored. Charlie Castalado also had a Dart and the pic shows him picking it up at the Hurst plant loading the primered Dart on a trailer  being towed by a Chrysler wagon with a number of the 50 LO23 Darts in the backgroung. I'll search for that pic also.   Glen
