32 3 window body weight???

What is the weight of a 32 3 window body sans doors, deck lid, firewall & interior but with the wood still in? I thought that I would be able to lift at least one corner but I am not able to do so. I am now wondering if 4 guys would be able to lift it off the frame and move it to a dolly. The body seems to be held down on the frame but I have removed all of the bolts and cannot find anything else holding it except the cushion between the body and the frame. I am not sure if that is capable of adhering to the body and frame and holding it in place. Help would be appreciated.

Thank you for the reply. I need to get the body off so I can have the frame straightened. Wasn't sure if 4 guys could do it. Now I will recruit some for the job. Thanks again.
