I've got a 62' two door coupe falcon with a 144 six and 3 speed manual and I wanted to know the weight of the car. Do you guys have a rough idea what they are supposed to weigh.

Thanks

2262/2347 is factory rated... Mine came from this source, with a V8, so you can decuct 150 lbs... (driverless and empty of course...) and, I believe this is old racing info but fairly accurate...>>>

My '62 with a 351W/C4/9inch,Granada disc brakes with full interior weighs 3050 without driver. This is a real word number not bogus shipping or otherwise weight.
