I have a homemade tow bar that was made to tow Willy's and AMC jeeps,
and other "robust american iron".  A freind (crap!... eieioh) and I used
it to tow his MGA.  We chained it to the bumper and the bumper ended up
getting bent.

I think LBC bumpers are too delicate to be used as towing attachment
points.  A bar made to attach to the frame or suspension may be
feasible, but the front wheel dolly is hard to beat (U-haul rents
them).  I towed a 71 B from Minneapolis to Chicago area at +/- 80 MPH
behind a V-6 Astro van with no trouble at all and without LBC damage.
