Whats my truck gonna weigh

Just for curiosity when I was researching my cam with camquest they asked the vehicle weight . 53 small block automatic I would think it would be reasonably close to original other than a little extra with undercoating and interior . Has anyone weighed their finished truck ? I was using 3500lbs how far out am I ? LOL

I guess that the rest of us are just not as "curious" as you are...if I was, I would take my truck to the nearest scale and answer that question. The last truck I had weighed needed a weigh slip to complete the registration process since it came from out of state. That stock 53 with a flathead weighed 3480 lbs.

I've knocked so much rust off my truck, I think it's had at least a 200 pound diet!
