Indian Dispatch Tow

Dealerships and garages used the Dispatch Tow to deliver cars. Prior to its delivery, the Dispatch Tow was secured to a vehicle's rear bumper with its integral front-mounted tow-bar. The vehicle was then driven to the customer with the three-wheeler in tow. Upon arrival, the Dispatch Tow was unhooked and ridden back to the dealer or garage. This enabled the establishment to send only one person to drop off a vehicle. It also granted an owner the luxury of not having to personally retrieve a car.
