69 Cutlass Supreme - best way to pull from garage?

I need to pull this car out of a garage and into a yard to load onto a trailer.

What is the best way to hook up to the rear of the car so that I can pull it out?

I'd appreciate any help or advice you all can provide.

Cable or chain around the rear axle. Watch out for the brake line.

If you have front disc brakes, hope the pads aren't "glued" to the rotors. If they are...several short lengths of pipe under a plank on each side will make your job easier if its on concrete.

I haven't looked at it myself yet. A couple of people tried pushing it backwards but could only get it to rock back and forth a little.

I was hoping to avoid that but I guess I might not be able to.

Ah, so you are buying it. The rear brake pads could be "glued" also. I would recommend a rolling floor jack, eight or ten 1 foot lengths of pipe and two 6 foot planks (2" X 6") if shoes and pads are "glued" to drums and rotors. Jack one end at a time to see if either set of wheels (front/rear) turn.
If one set of wheels roll, use the rolling floor jack under the end that doesn't roll. A "come along" could be helpful. I would get the trailer as close to the car as you can. BE SAFE !
I have been down this road before, Good luck.

As silly as this may sound.....make sure the tranny is in NEUTRAL.

Be sure to use the stick brakes as a bargaining chip for a better price. 😎

Provided the car is on concrete, some car/wheel dollies could come in handy too with some guidance.
