Anyone know or have the data on the curb side weight of a 61 Lark 4 door sedan. V-8 automatic trans with no air, no power steering, dana 27 rear, no radio, small 10 inch brakes, and faded dead paint. Only option I can find is the heater and undercoating. Body number on cowl is 61V W4 1992. Thanks.

Ok, thanks. That makes a race weight of close to 3300 lbs with driver. Going to be a rolling burden for the little 259.

Look for closer to 3,450 with driver unless you are built like a jockey, you don't realise how much junk and stuff you carry around in your car. If you build it right it should be good for low 16"s around 86 MPH.
