If you were to rent a dolly, say from u-haul, they would ask about what you are hauling, and what you are hauling it with. They could let you know for sure.

You've got a big truck for the old tbi 4.3. You won't be going fast but the truck will handle it. Don't use overdrive and don't give it too much hell and you'll be fine. I belive the car is well within its tow rating. Of course don't use a bumper mount, I'm assuming you have a good reciever hitch installed
