How much does it weigh?

How much does a 1956 F100 weigh? It has no motor or tranny, just a shell. I even have the bed off of it. I am trying to calculate my towing weight with my trailer. Thanks!

Take the 3460 from the thread above and subtract 760 pounds for engine (272=625#), transmission and associated gear/fluids then subtract 200 pounds for the bed (without wood I can just pick mine up and walk around with it on my back).

The resulting 2450-2550 pounds should be pretty close -- +/- 200 pounds isn't going to make any difference (it's the weight of a man sitting in the cab).

I can't help ya much with the weight, but between 2000-2500 sounds right depending on how complete the sheetmetal is. I towed home a 55 last month that even looks similar to yours from Sacramento to Paso Robles. Uhaul tried telling me that a 55 was too wide for the little car dolly, and that it was too heavy. They were VERY wrong on both counts and I'm glad I didn't rent the bigger flatbed. You will have about 4" clearance each side with a 7" wheel. Mine loaded super easily.

U -haul is really becoming a pain in th ebutt when it comes to renting those trailers lately. You have to enter the car you are going to tow in their computer while building the contract, and their lawyers/insurance company has made it so it's almost impossible to haul anything that's not 20% below the rated capacity of the trailer.

When we hauled home "Rhonda," I just told them that 52 F-100 (with no drive train) was a 75 Honda! Worked just fine!

I'll probably cringe, but will answer your question anyway I guess .

From the 1954 Dealer Handbook, a stock Henry panel with V8 and 6.50 x 16" tires has a curb weight of 3515 pounds. That includes fuel and fluids. We'll be needing pics of course, but I'll cover my eyes. Stu

What are you going to be towing it with, if you have a pickup you'll be able to pull it from one side of the country to the other without any problems, if your driving a bug then that's completely different.
