I'm working on putting a 4 link in my64. Has anyone weighed there car or know what the weight distribution is for the Falcon's. It's a Futura 2 door hardtop, v8/auto, 9" rear.

Hello, Ronny.

The best that I was able to determine was:

Curb weight of a 1963 260 V-8 Hardtop with a bench seat = 2,880 lbs. Weight distribution 55/45% or 1584/1296 lbs (front/rear).

Thanks, Dennis.

Other 1963 weights:
The 2-door Futura weighs 2,425 lb. The 170 convertible weighs 2,765 lbs. The base Hardtop weighs 2,565 lbs.
The 260 V-8 Convertible weighs 3,046 lbs (166 lbs heavier than the hardtop).
Bucket seats and a console weigh 35 lbs more than the bench seat.
The Ford-O-Matic aluminum-case two-speed automatic transmission weighs 108 lbs without the 7.5-qts fluid or torque converter.
