I'm removing the body from a stock '28 Tudor sedan that still has the drivetrain in it. The body is solid, not flimsy. I've removed the wooden front floorboards and all the mounting bolts. Now it's just resting on the frame. The problem: there doesn't seem to be a simple way to remove that long shift lever. What's the simplest way to proceed? 1. Is there a way to remove the shifter that's not obvious? 2. Should I leave the shifter in place, invite a few more friends, and "clean-&-jerk" the body chest-high (high enough to clear it)? 3. Should I remove the firewall/cowl/gas tank, then just lift the remaining body just a few inches, then carry it back and away from the chassis? Thanks much.
