George, do a search for " towing attachment" and you will find your answers.
It seems that unless you are really lucky to find an original, you are s.o.l. on this one.
The costs seem to be prohibitive in having repros made and manufacturing one from plate steel is a pile of work for something that, in the end, will work, but won't be "right".

Default carrier Tow Hitch

I know of several carrier owners that would like a hitch . If I can't cast the arms for one I will weld them up I have the spring and hook . There was an old fellow in the UK that had a pile of carriers that we tried to get a part from but we can't get a reply from him as he is very old .I will check with a local foundry to see what they would charge for a run My carrier hitch is some where about a 100 miles from where I live where it was dimantled about 20 years ago The paint still shows where it came off . Don't give up George
