I don't know that I'd want to go much over 65 towing one of these P30s with anything less than a medium duty truck. 65 would save you a little over an hour on the drive time, but it's still an all-day affair.Well that is great I live in Northeast Texas and the nearest step van I can find is in Amarillo 500+ miles away @ 55 miles an hour would be 9+ hours if I did not stop. Oh well I'll keep looking. Thanx.
Why, when I picture that, do I have in my mind the guy w/ the wheelchair that got shoved down the road at freeway speed by a truck..Paul ( off to flat tow his Peterbuilt cross country with my Yugo....at night ha ha ha
If it's not a runner/driver or you have no where to store the van as you tear into it that's a good idea. I know I'm glad I got my van home because I'm still using parts off of it. It was helpful to study it once at home to see how things were setup to help give me ideas on swaping it into my project. However, this site is a fantastic resource and I've learned more here than I would have studying the van by myself. If you can get it home and have a place to store it you might end up using more parts off of it then first anticipated.As Machman stated, I drove mine home with a friend chasing in my truck. Another option occurred to us the other day. Load up all your tools and engine hoist, go to the van location and pull the engine and/or trans plus whatever else you needed. Contact area salvage/scrap yards before hand to have them lined up for the body. A little more time on your part but you dont have to tow if your not set up for it.
come on now that's crazy ???yes even with a 1ton and trailer 50-55 is max, and that is scary unless youre running dual wheels, and have a huge trailer. electric brakes are a must also because when a semi blows by you, it'll whip you really bad, and can cause jacknifing if you dont have trialer brakes to stop it.

I pulled my van with my 1 ton CC single rear wheel and trailer 36ft and it was fine. Yes trailer brakes are a must !!
It also depends on how it's loaded.
