How much does a 63 Falcon Hardtop weigh?

I have a 65 Australian Futura coupe which is loosely based on a 63 falcon coupe with 63 Mercury Comet front gaurds. How much do these cars weigh as I need the info to spec my stall converter and custom cam? I am aware each individual car may vary depending on engine and custom mods, just a ballpark figure on any modified coupes or factory?

below is a link to the car

'63 Comet 4 door with a 170/Auto weighed in at around 2750, with a V8 should weight less than 3000. The Falcons are even lighter, because they're shorter than Comets(by more than a foot!!).

Cool thanks if you follow the link below you can see the style of car(if you havn't already). The roofline is the same as the 63-64 Falcon/Comet coupe doors are 63 coupe. It will be running a Dart blocked 408 with an AOD(modified of course).

Wow guys, I didn't realize we were talking THAT low weight! 62Falcon and CoolFalcon being just a bit over 2600 lbs. is great. I've got a '61 w/all steel body, 302 w/iron heads, T5 and 9" and no cage. I suppose I'm around your weight.
