Default Mustang Bare Shell Weights

A friend of mine and I are considering building a Rotisserie. We've seen many rotisseries constructed from engine stands and they are usually rated at 750-1500 pounds, so that got us thinking...and wondering just how much these classic mustangs weight. I googled and gave up.

So if any of you know the body weights of your car, can you post them?

Not looking for guesstimates. Please include year, body style, and how you came about the weight (preferably just the body shell, but if you only know the weight with doors/ rear ends, convertible tops, etc., please list the parts on the car, but NOT looking for whole car weights, that info is easily available all over the web.)

I think this info will be useful to other members as well as interesting trivia!

Hi,
I know this isn't giving you an exact weight,but it was easy for 4 of us to pick up my bare shell 69 Mach1 bare shell project. None of us were weight lifters, and we had no problem setting it on a trailer. I'm guessing it's no more than 600-700lbs. I had very little trouble taking it off the trailer by myself and putting it up on blocks, and trust me, I'm no Charles Atlas

To give a consensus--I had estimated mine to be 700-750 when it was a bare shell and going on the rotisserie.

Yeah mine is stripped down and it isnt very heavy at all. Takes nothing to lift it a slight bit.....
I would tend to believe the 700 pound range, especially without the suspension.....
