Curb Weight

What is the curb weight of a 66-67 GTO coupe? How much more is the convertible?

Depending on options, they run about 3750 pounds, and the convertibles are about 200 pounds heavier. Advertised shipping weight was a lot lower, but I've never seen one of these cars that was as light as the shipping weight label.

What would be some ways to reduce weight? I'm having trouble finding fiberglass for the 66-67 models.

Start scraping undercoating, removing sound insulation, and removing any parts you don't need. If you're building a drag car, there are a lot of parts that can come out...
