Pulled the suspension back off the Jetfire and have the shell on the lift. I decided to weigh the shell. I did not pull the doors off or the trunk lid off but I did weigh a door from a parts car that was gutted just like the ones on the car. I did not have a trunk lid to weigh but did weigh a 61 Buick lid. I am guessing they are really close to the same weight. Likely within 3 or 4 lbs. It comes to 702 lbs for the Jetfire shell and nothing on it. When I am able to weigh a trunk lid for Olds I will correct the total. Now I would like to know what the Cutlass shell weighs.
