Bed Weight?

I'm removing my '66 Longbed this weekend. I've done a search and read the tips/tricks and have my impact wrench, penetrating oil and buddies on speed-dial... I was wondering, though, if anyone knew the exact weight of the bed? Not for lifting purposes, but I'm wondering if it exceeds the working load limit of my sawhorse set... thanks.

Its 485 pounds...minus the bedside toolbox...and spare carrier if it has one inside the bed.
The carrier adds 10 pounds.

This is according to the 1964 Salesmans Facts Book supplied to the dealers by Ford Motor Co. with an intro page dated September 1963.

I would estimate the bedside toolbox adds 40 pounds...its 30 pounds for the shortbed toolbox.

I don't know the weight but I have gotten on my hands and knees crawled under an inverted bed lifted it and moved it where I wanted it on more than one occasion. I wouldn't think I could lift 400lbs.

I have also with someone on the other side lifted them and moved them off the chassis.
