I am trying to determine the towing capacity of my 1981 Ford F100 4x4 5.8-litre auto. I have contacted Ford and they have no data on this vehicle relating to towing, but I note that Carsguide has the towing capacity at 1800 kg, which does not seem correct (i.e. it seems too low). Could you please tell me the source of the information you have so I can check/confirm the capacity that I am allowed to tow?
1800kg does seem low, but it’s before manufacturers began giving their vehicles a towing rating. I suggest you contact your state registration authorities or the RACQ and ask them.
