Pulling the body

I am attempting to pull the body of my 4 door pontiac sedan. I don't have 7 freinf\ds as crazy as I do so I was going to try to pull the body using tow straps and and engine hoist. Place the front and rear of the body on steel tubing on steel saw horses. The plan was to roll the frame out and the dolly in. I threaded bolts in to the fender mounting holes and placed the hooks of the strap around the bolts. Iplaced the hoist hook in the middle of the strap and atempted to hoist. As I was opulling it it looked like I was bending the mounting holes out of shape and body was not moving at all. I verified that all the body bolts have been removed and I don't see anything that is making the body stick. Any suggestions out there? Should I try to find 7 people who are as crazy as me and lift it manually.
