Corner Weights-complete shell on wheels(almost useless info)

In case you ever wondered...

I recently obtained a digital scale capable of weighing up to 400 Pounds. I carefully checked it's calibration with a friend's Toledo calibrated weight set. Good to half a pound as best I can determine. Meanwhile, my '68 build 1600-2 sits waiting for more restoration love. So, let's see what it weighs....

These weights are theoretically a bit high since I did not lift all 4 wheels to the height of the scale platform first- I just weighed it by putting one wheel at a time on the scale. There are also about 80 pounds of lose ready to install parts randomly scattered about in the trunk and passenger compartment.

So, your mileage may vary. Right now, My car has:

No engine, transmission, or drive shaft

No door interior hardware or glass

No windows except rear window

Trunk lid installed with all hardware and gasket

hood mounted with hinges but no opening mechanism

Old rear end with Long neck diff still installed

Old front suspension still installed

No interior except original steering wheel and column

320i turbines with old tires mounted

headliner installed

No other rubber installed (door seals, etc...)

The weights I measured are:

Left Front = 308 Pounds

Right Front = 295 pounds

Left Rear = 369 pounds

Right Rear = 355 pounds

to avoid any confusion, Left = US driver's side!
