Thanks Dan. I was under the impression that they were separate.
Early CMCs came with the frame separate and the doors not mounted. My Nov. '88 came with both installed. The sub-frame is very strongly attached to the fiberglass body with what looks like lots of Liquid Nails and 1/4" dia rivets. I would not want to try to separate them.
Dave - If put in a framed wood crate - it can be shipped by truck. Since it is not a roller (with steering/wheels) it would be costly. In 1988 (a long time ago) CMC quoted $1400 from Miami to Northern VA via Pilot Trucking. You still need a donor VW for pan/suspension/drive train.
