    Not always legal in all fifty States...down hill costing is a NO NO here in California.
    As long as those back wheels are moving she's getting oil moved around in the trans.

    With a T56 it is not recommended to tow except with drive shaft disconnected.

    Short coasts would be OK, for a few hundred feet.
