What does a '66 Comet weigh?

Postby braat » Fri Jan 23, 2004 11:51 am

Anybody know what a '66 Comet Capri 2 dr HT, 289, C4, 8" rear would weigh ( roughly)? Just curious...when I get it legal I can get it weighed at a scale somewhere.

Hey great stuff...if I'd thought quick enuff I could have sold you my E350 van which has a 460 in it. but then the 233k miles might have scared you off even though they're propane miles. Actually I'm just kidding about selling...just wanted to brag I have a 460...it's a handibus vehicle with a wheelchair lift we use for my sister who has MS

> and i think i found you some k code cyl heads for your 289

Hey....cool....What are the casting #'s and how much are they? What's their history and what kind of shape are they in...so many questions :)
