    You should probably put what your going to be towing.

    Your 86? and maybe the weight

    See if you can find some specs, but don't think it would legally be able to tow that much.

    I'd be interested to know what's legal. What's an MX73 weigh? 1400ish?

    I would defiantly say you wouldn't be able to tow with it if the car and trailer weighs more than the car. You would have to call up transport and ask I suppose.

    to make it legal (upgraded brakes thus handling more or chassis mods) it would have to be engineered and probs tested to the shit house by that engineer

    In QLD you cannot modify a car to have a larger towing capacity, I looked into it for my hiace I had ended up selling it and buying a landcruiser with a lot of change left over haha.
