How muuch does the car weigh?

What trans and gears?
The motor was intended to go in my 1924 T roadster but I decided to go drag racing instead. I figure I will run it for one season and if it does not run fast enough I will change the cam and go to a higher stall speed on the convertor. My current stall is 3000. the trans is a built C-4 and the gears in the rear are 4:11`s. I have not weighed the car yet but I have removed every thing that is not required to make it run or pass tech. Even the whole dash is gone. The guages are mounted to the 10 point cage. I removed the bumper covers and beams front and rear and replaced them with a narrowed 66 parts on the front and a 69 bumper and 68 valance in the rear. That mod alone removed about 175 pounds from the car and a 78 coupe was lite to begin with.[/QUOTE]
