How much does your car weigh?
#1
Just curious how much the 71-73 mustangs weigh. If you've run you car on a scale, please share and provide a general description, body type, cleveland or 302, deluxe vs. std interior. Thanks!

Good question! The titled weight on my 73 Convertible 6 cylinder is 3,106 pounds. The GVWR weight on the door sticker is 4,150. Mine came with Decor Option, Power Disc Brakes, power steering, full console, AM/FM, steel wheels with trim rings and hub cap, sport mirrors. Can't think of any other options that may effect the weight.

I believe the convertibles actually weighed more than the coupes but maybe we will find out here.

I've never had mine weighed on a scale.

My door tag on my 73 Q code w/C6 and 3.50 rear says 4447 lbs. Can't wait to finish it and put it on a scale because that just doesn't seem right. But I just went out to check my 73 Chevelle w/454 and th350 and it was 5472 lbs. with a full frame.

The 4447 sounds like the GVWR weight, or the maximum loaded weight with passengers and luggage. The actual weight should be in the mid 3,000's.

My registration form reads 1510 kg (= 3 328,98016 lbs according to Google). That is listed as "Masse en service" that translates to "Unladen weight + 75kg for the driver".
Max authorized weight is 2100 kg (= 4 629,70751 lbs again Google)
That is for a 1972 vert with 302, FMX and almost full optinons.

I haven't weighed the car though. Those are only the official numbers on my registration.


I did check the "Illustrated Facts and Specifications Manual" for the 1971 Mustang and it lists the following numbers under "Curb Weight":


For the 6 cylinder manual:
Hardtop :3080, Convertible: 3200, Sportsroof: 3050

Grandé 3110
Mach1 3180
Boss 351 3370

No Numbers for the V8 Convertible though.

My registration label lists the unladen weight at 1451 kilos (or 3192 pounds).

But that's only because when I got the car registered in Australia for the first time that's what I told the rego people the car weighed, based on info I found on the internet.

I shoulda told them it was 1000 pounds lighter. Having a lighter car might have aided my cars handling and performance..... [Image: wacko.gif]
