Default questions on towing

Can a sebring 1 be towed with a tow dolly (rear wheels on the dolly and front on ground) or will the nose drag with the rear raised up? Is there an easy spot to winch one onto a trailer if its not running without damage?

It will be really close on a tow dolly, especially if the front is lowered at all. It may be fine on a flat road but I would not like to go over any slight hill or train tracks.

From the front you will want to winch from the beam some how. Maybe a tow strap around the trailing arms?

I don't see a tow dolly working without doing some damage. I built a trailer just to move my Sterlings around. A flat bed is the way to go.

Ideally I'd want drive wheels up, but since it's a manual transmission I should be ok to put the front on the dolly correct? Manuals are splash lubricated right?

Front wheels on the dolly are ok. Transmission in neutral, of course. Swingaxles will have more issues with lubrication on the outer bearings (or lack thereof), so if yours is a swing, make it a short trip.
