You can buy one from JCWhitney for $99. It is a Class I hitch.

Go here-

Enter in your vehicle info.

On the lower left, click on "Hitches Towing & Trailers" then click on "Hitches".

You should see the Curt Class I pop up for $99.

For what it is worth. About 20 years ago I had
U-Hual install one on my 1980 300D.

Attaches to the bumber and the spare tire tub.

Then bought the trailer ligth hookup that is in the trunk and tapped into my
tail and turn signals.

All together - 20 years ago - $100.

It works fine. Have pulled plenty of things, including another car (a short distance).

Many folks on here don't like this kind of hitch, but it worked for me.

I bought one about 20 years ago for my 83 300D. Never installed it. I think I still have it (in the original box). PM me it you want me to look for it.

I've got a cheap bumper hitch on my TD that I took off a 300D in the junkyard. Works fine for small utility trailers. I wouldn't use it for a heavy trailer. JC Whitney sells a receiver hitch for 123 sedans and wagons. Pricey but probably worth it for heavy pulling. Limit is 1500lbs unbraked, 2500lbs braked.

don't touch anything that bolts onto the bumper. the bumper shocks aren't designed to carry a load.
