Re: Camaro Curb Weight

From the info Chevy sent me for my 68 (very useful and free, everyone should get one...call the Chevrolet Customer Assistance Center and ask for a restoration package, need to give your VIN).

As equipped from factory, 68 base coupe V8 was 3,105 lb curb (base coupe 6 cyl. was 2,950 lb curb).

Convertible adds 300 lb to coupe curb weight.

Optional equipment added weight to base as follows:
Power windows + 18
Folding rear seat + 34
Power top (vert) + 7
Air conditioning + 97
Floor console +13
Power brakes +11
Front disc brakes +40
250 ci 6 cyl +17 (to base 230 ci 6cyl weight)
4-speed +16
3-speed HD +29
Auto trans (Glide) -3 6 cyl, +5 V8
Power steering +30
HD battery +15 cyl, +5 V8
AM radio +9
AM/FM +10
Stereo tape +12
Rallysport +19

Big blocks add as follows:

L34 +309
L78 +281
L89 +210

Th400 auto for BB +54


That should get you close.

Re: Camaro Curb Weight

Adam -

They just send you a 1-inch thick packet of general info, photocopies of marketing material of the day, spec and AMA data sheets, things like that.

Nothing specific to any particular car, but it's free and good to have.
