Since I have the front grill work and bumper off the 68 Barracuda, I think I want to add a front tow hook.
The front bumper is fiberglass with lightweight aluminum bumper mounts, and the front spoiler would really limit access to the k frame.
I am thinking of a simple 3/8 inch thick steel L bracket that would bolt to the passenger side sub frame where the bumper mount is, with the L forward and below the bumper with an eye on it for attaching a pull cable hook. Sound reasonable?
Any other ideas?

I used a G Force one:

I bolted directly to the front bumper mount.

What you propose probably works if you have the fiberglass bumper installed in place of the OE bumper.

The tow hook is made and mounted. Weighed in at 3.8 lbs
I would have liked to use a strap like Greg did, but I needed it to get below the front bumper so in use the pull cable would not put pressure on the fiberglass bumper.
