[MV] Buying an MV to pull a 25 pdr

One thing you want to considr above all else in pulling the 25 pdr is stopping
it. WW2 vehicles had somewhat ineffecient brakes.

Only pull it with a vehicle with vacume boosted or air brakes. In WW2 US
vehicles, that would be a 1.5 ton Chevy, CCKW or Diamond-T or larger vehicle.

Just because you can pull it does not mean you can stop it...
