I fitted one to my Model A sedan a few years ago, my mate made a box section that bolted on to the chassis then a secondry piece that was removeable that the ball fixed to, just remember that a tow bar comes into the MOT now and has to be vehicle specific so make it so it comes off completly

Post August 1998 vehicles are covered by TA regs for towbars, so the towbar must display the relevant markings. Pre-August 1998 vehicles are exempt so the towbar is only checked for condition and security of mountings etc.

IMO a removable towbar on a rod looks much better!
