trailer hitch for an '87 5000s

Several years ago, I had a hitch installed on my '81 4000 to make it easier
for me to transport a racecar I was building from shop-to-shop around town.
Having survived more than 280k miles (and a girlfriend whose first thought
whenever I mentioned oil was "Olay"), it has reached the end of its useful
life and I now find myself needing to install a hitch on my '87 5000s.

Before I have something custom-made, I'd like to know whether there's one I
can buy off-the-shelf and install myself.  Ideally, it would be designed to
bolt-on (so I can take it off) and use a receiver tube so I can adjust ball
height to keep the tow-bar level.  Although the car to be towed weighs 2300
pounds, my average tow is under 10 miles and I've never had any problems in
the past using a 1500 pound-rated hitch...

Any recommendations/suggestions?
