Can I use a front wheels dolly trailer to transport a triumph rear wheel drive 4 speed spitfire?


Asked by nebaloon Nov 17, 2013 at 10:07 AM about the 1980 Triumph Spitfire

Question type: General

The rear wheels will be traveling on the road. Does this work with this car that has a rear
wheel drive? Do I just keep the car in neutral and all will be good?  If someone can please
help me with this I do not want to wreck the car.

Thank you Jim for your help! Now as a good mom picking up this car for her son will now need to know how to disconnect the drive shaft and what tools are needed. Is this something I can do?

Hey Jim! One last stupid question if you see this… May I be able to put the car on with the rear wheels on the dolly? and have it travel backwards? Since it's a rear wheel drive would THAT damage the car?


Ok. I can't thank you enough for your help!!! I might look into a trailer that will accommodate the WHOLE car on the trailer which will really make me feel better.
