I weighed my 66 el Camino in the scale. It came in at 2,800 lbs. my 69 Chevelle weighs 3,500 lbs

My 64 El Camino was 3394 when I bought it. See post #2 of this thread for car details and photo of the scale readout: https://www.chevelles.com/forums/17-...el-camino.html
I'll reweigh it when finished (many changes including alu head 383, EFI, glass hood, T56, alu center 9", alu driveshaft, 4 wh disks, buckets, AC, PS, PB, tilt, etc.......) and I'm hoping to not gain much if any weight due to the hood and aluminum parts but everything else I added is heavy so likely gained some pounds... To pull ~ 600 lbs out to match the 2800 would take extreme measures, wish I could but I don't see it happening.
As another point of reference, my 71 El Camino (Alu head 383/700R4, steel hood, PS, PB, tilt, alu center 9", alu driveshaft, 4 wh disks, etc...) is about 3700 (I have scale photos somewhere).
