I weighed the Turbo Coupe last friday, had about a 1/4 of a tank of gas, spare in the back, weighed 3460 with me in it.

I weighed my 88 GT awhile back and it was 3260 with me in it, 1/4 of a tank of gas, no front sway bar, some sound insulation out of the trunk and under the back seats, dogbone off the rearend.

For those of you that are curious about what a Turbo Coupe weighs, there you go. [Image: smile.gif]

That's exactly 32lbs less than my car, and I thought MINE was on the light side. Have you removed anything from the car?

I thought that they were heavier than that. I have read somewhere that the TCs can weight up to about 3700lbs. Put me in a car that heavy and you are trying to move about 4000lbs. with 140CI. Thank god these things are turbocharged. Glad to see that they don't actually weigh that much though.

Motor Trend in their 1987 Car Of The Year tests reported the TC as weighing 3380(same for Hot Rod in a test with a 5.0 Bird). I believe this is a "dry weight" as reported by Ford.

3415 is the weight stated by my local DMV, that agrees with the weight stated bt NADA too. Very close to what you guys have weighed.
