1966 coupe weight

Anyone happen to have weighed the front of their car. Interested in a V8 nose weight.

The V8 curb weight was around 2,800lbs. The bias to the front was 53% of that, supposedly. 53/47 is a better ratio than I would have guessed. If you add power steering and A/C it's probably more like 57/43 front to rear.
