Does anyone have technical data on the pulling power of the 1958 Buick from the factory??
This is needed for pulling a trailor behind the car.
Or are those things not know from that period?

I'm not sure, I seem to remember reading about towing in some literature, I think it basically said to talk to the dealership about adding a towing package. If I find any details, I'll post here. I would think with the power of the engine, towing a small trailer or camper would be no problem, might have to beef up the rear springs a little. I would use a hitch bolted to the frame, not a bumper hitch.
