Hit the scales! What do they weigh?

I was out cruising and decided to pull in the local grain elevator and weigh my 1 ton C30 panel truck. She weighed in at 4,860 lbs with about 50ish pounds of extras in it.

I didn't think that was too hateful considering how big it is. I'm running a tbi 350/4l80e combo. Also have metal floors compared to the original wood rear flooring.

Anyone else weigh their truck?

Re: Hit the scales! What do they weigh?

had to weigh my '65 Chevy C20 for CA registration

hit 4280lbs empty and only 1/2 tank of fuel..

severe rust and missing bed boards probably saved me a hundred lbs

I have a 65 C10 SWB stepside with a BBC and roll cage. Weighed in with me in it at 4000# almost dead on. Without me, probably 3700#.

Re: Hit the scales! What do they weigh?

Our trucks are really light for their size. I got the original weight numbers from GM Heritage when I was importing my truck and registering it.

Re: Hit the scales! What do they weigh?

Had to weigh mine for registration too. Little over 5,700 eight years ago. I think she's getting heavier with age too... like me!

Re: Hit the scales! What do they weigh?

I think its funny how much these weights can vary. You 4x4 and c20+ guys weighing in at 2.5 tons or more, yet there are a few of us in the 31-3700 range (a few even less).

My 66 with an Lq4, no inner fenders, aluminum front wheels, full audio custom interior, fuel cell etc should be around 3850 (unverified for a few more weeks at least).

Re: Hit the scales! What do they weigh?

3914 lbs with my weight subtracted and 1/3 tank fuel. I don't know where I got the previous figure from but it is a little low. This one was metric tare at the dump and I used a metric converter.
