  A U-Haul agent cobbled a hitch for my '75 MGB.  As I recall, there was
a fore&aft piece that attached to a cross bracket near the front of the
spare tire well floor, and another smaller cross bracket that bolted
through the rear of the well.
  It worked great for me, towing a Laser on a trailer for thousands of
miles.  Hooking up lights was the greatest hassle.  I used one two lights
each side, one a dual filament for tail & brake,  and a single filament
fixture for turn signals.  It is possible to merge the MG system into a
two-filament US system, but I never could get it to work reliably.  A
filament for each function worked well.
  MG Owners Club sold hitches a few years ago too. They may still.  If
you get theirs, keep in mind that it's probably made with a 50mm ball,
not the 1 7/8 USA ball.
