Hi all.  Anyone know if a WB Statesman towbar tongue will fit a WB ute?  Thanks in advance.  Cheers Ron

If they are both factory fitted towbars with the two bolts holding the tongue to the bar then I reckon it would.

Yeah my towbar is, I think, original (or period correct) and just has the 2 bolts.  I did hear somewhere that one may be longer than the other but haven't been able to confirm or otherwise.  Cheers Ron

I have a WB factory towbar but can't be sure I'll get over there this week or that I'll remember to measure it.

 

But I'll try.

The part number is different between the two, but it might just differ in length or angle, but maybe only slightly.
