    The weights were also used on sliding roof station wagons.
    The only reason I know this , I took one apart once.

      Many years ago I had a '60 Lark Convertible that the previous owner changed from a 6 to a V-8. All he had changed was the radiator, engine, trans, and I'm pretty sure, the driveshaft. I eventually changed to V-8 springs on the front, which it needed. But it steered fine and the small 6 cyl. rear end held up okay. The 6 cyl. brakes were adequate although I'm sure the larger ones would have been nice to have. What I'm getting at is: How do you plan to use the car? For light duty, Sunday drive type of use, you may not have to swap out as much as you think.

      This also reminds me of one other neat feature that the car had. Since it still had the 4:56 rear end, and the speedometer gear wasn't changed, when accelerating from a stop, the needle would fly up past 30 or 35 in less than 2 seconds, adding to the illusion of high performance!
