  • Weight of the shell of a Lark

    I am building a body cart. I will be lifting the Lark off of the frame. The glass is out, interior is out, fenders are off, trunk is off and hood is off. How much does the shell weigh for a Lark?

    Since the exact weight could not possibly matter, call it 800-1000 LBS. that will work to figure the stress on the cart!

        Two men can lift the rear of a 2 door sedan Lark body shell with all the glass in it and the doors and trunk lid on it. Its not very heavy at all. I've done it.
