Anyone have or know of a hitch for a 67' Impala?

Anyone have a hitch or know where I can find one for my 67'? I can't find anything online and the ones I have seen on ebay that people have lying around don't seem to include all the pieces. Has anyone here set on up on this car? I might be able to use another vehicles hitch, haven't really looked at it that hard yet but just seeing if anyone knows or has experience. This will be the first "car" I have with a hitch haha

Just make one up using pieces from a "Universal". I put one on my Skylark (same vintage) using pieces from a universal without a problem. You do have a full frame and a metal rear bumper to bolt it to (behind the license plate).

Ya I was thinking about doing that but trying to see if anyone else had done it a different way. That's probably what I'll be doing, thanks!

any good trailer shop can build 1 that fits like a glove.... it wasn't uncommon for wagon's to have hitches, so you may even find a factory peice

I've seen a couple factory "bumper" hitches but too light weight for my tastes. I know they had a towing package that was rated to 5K lbs but I haven't seen one of those hitches for sale. The frame at the rear kicks up at an angle leading up to the rear bumper. I think that might make it a tad more difficult than most straight frame trucks/cars at the rear. Shouldn't be too big of a deal though. Wish I still had my welder lol.
