I would like to fit a towbar on my 14/56 to tow an eccles caravan from 1932 which I bought this year.
After a long fight with the geman MOT (changing the trailer hitch to modern standard although the old one was build fine) now I got the caravan road-legal.
Now I have the same procedure with my Wolseley- the german MOT is struggling a lot to permit a towbar on the car.
The towbar itself is not the problem- I have a specialist who offers me a roadlegal construction.
But the MOT needs the possible buff load and asks if there are any informations maybe directly given from the Wolseley company.
Or does anyone have a towbar on his car (maybe similar type) and is able to give the information I need?
Otherwise the german MOT will try several tests, for example if the handbrake is able to held the car+caravan on a steep hill.
(sometimes the prejudice of german stupid bureaucracy is reality... :angry: ).

I'm not sure that car companies did publish towing data for this age of vehicle, I doubt that towing was a mainstream consideation in those days!
If no one else can suggest anything specific for your 14/56, may I suggest that you try asking our technical adviser, Dave Palmer, if he might know? Unfortunately, he doesn't use the forum, so you will need to email him.
Sorry I cannot be of any more help.
