I just saw this old commercial where that chevy was towing a boat with the rear wheels detached and i cant help but wonder if thats even reasonably possible.

As they said it was specifically to show that it was FWD, there was probably a third wheel in the back to hold up the rear, as the tongue weight of that boat was probably higher than the actual overall towing capacity of that poor little car.

yeah thats true. it would be interesting to see that done not for something huge like that but it would be cool to tow small trailers like that.

And hard to drive - without the rear wheels on the car the thing would try to drive like a huge bus - and having the articulated hitch...... it would be a nightmare to drive.
