Two things you can do to determine the weight,

1. Look at registration, it might have shipping weight of car, then add shipping weight of roll bar, scattershield, and motor plate. This will be an estimate.
2. Fill all fliuds and weight it at a moving company scales or your local grain elevator scales, cost maybe $5.

I would guess 3450-3600 Lbs. if full interior.

and if they don't have print a ticket they might not charge.....I never do.

the local land fill/recycling center around here has a scale and they don't charge. I'm going there after I finish my summer work and see how much weight I dropped.

another good place is a state weigh station. i've got one close to my house, and my buddies and i have used it many times. if you go there when they aren't open (obviously) you can just pull on the scales, and you can see the reading through the window. they even pont them out the window sometimes, i think so truckers can check themselves.

I used a state highway weigh station once for my 67 Vette coupe 327 with me in it and it weighed 2750. I've always wondered how acurate those scales are for a vehicle much smaller than they are used to weighing. Anybody know if 2750 sounds right for that car? Seems light to me.
