Question

Excuse my ignorance, but what does a '68' std. sport coupe, small block, 4-speed weigh?? If I remember correctly, the title lists it at 3200 or 3400 lbs.

kz... you have a fat block. Doesn't your car weigh like 4,000 pounds or something?

Thanks guys.

Let me see if I have this straight. 3200 lbs. is a good guess for a small block with no options to speak of, and KZ runs about 800 lbs. fully loaded??? Got a few extra leaves in the drivers side spring do ya??

Cool

One could always drive the car to a grain elevator, moving/storage comp, or public scale and weigh it. Here it costs $5 a session,

I need to take mine to a trucker weigh station. I bet the big block and those shakers add the pounds. That why I need some L89 heads
