Default 1997 Ram towing question

I have a 1997 Ram 1500 5.9L gas, automatic, 2WD. The hitch bolted to the frame has no markings on it at all and the tounge part is cold welded rusted into place. I even tried a torch to remove it along with a 12lb sledge. Anyway, this set up appears to be solid. I have had the transmission replaced with a used unit, runs great and is under warranty by AAMCO. The engine is making good power for 149000 miles. Water pump, power steering and alternator replaced, al front end steering components replaced as well. So, my towing question is this... I have a Dodge Challenger show car that I need to trailer up to Ohio for the Mopar Nationals next month. The car weighs about 4200lbs, the trailer (if I can find one to rent) will only add to that weight. Will this truck tow this combination? U-Haul will not even talk to me about towing with this truck.
