I need to mount a hitch on my '57. thank you for the great info, photos and link, hitch looks factory/dealer perfect! :tuI got a hitch off a 97 Jeep Wrangler and put it on my 57. It mounts under the frame and bolted in to 2 holes already in the frame. then just had to drill 1 more hole in each side and bolt it on.
1st pic is 6ft away and 6ft off the ground as if you were standing at the back of the car looking down
2nd pic is from 6ft away and 1ft off the ground
Mine is a Valley Hitch but here is a pic and the link to one I found on Ebay that looks just like it.
