The '65 Mustang w/a 289/C-4 combo was listed at 2700lbs,so I can't imagine your car being too much heavier than that.....probably lighter,if anything!If you added an aluminum intake & heads you should be laughing!But if you've got 400lbs of stereo eqp't. you won't be quite so light!LOL!

Thanks for the quick info. The only info I can ever remeber seeing listed it at 2250. That is way to light. With the car beeing back halfed maybe I can get it lighter than 2700.

Re: 65 Falcon Curb Weight

Just don't use "published" weights - they are bogus. My 67 lists at about 2700, it really weighed over 3200 and still weighs 3000 with fiberglass parts and lots of things removed.
