Default Fly Weights

They're all V/8s (almost), they're all just slightly heavier than a Happy Meal and they're all decent but not particularly easy, cheap or even realistic! Any more that you can think of?
72 Gremlin 304/180 O/SA at 2870#.
63 Falcon 260/158 P/S at 2695# (I'm thinking 4 speed because of block bp)
81 Mustang 255/150 Q/SA at 2720# (auto only)
65 Valiant 273/165 P/S or auto at 2810#
65 Valiant 273/210 J/S or auto at 2795# (Edelbrock intake!)
65 Chevy II 283/170 P/S or auto at 2890#
65 Chevy II 283/223 I/SA at 2845# (stick heavier)
Now some orphans
62 Buick Special 215/185 K/S at 2575# (4V and aluminium engine, might have to be stick)
63 Olds Jetfire 215/215 J/S at 2855# ( turbo and factory alcohol injection, Jericho, 2 step and pop pop, bang bang, hang on!)
62 Pontiac Tempest 195/166 P/S at2825# ( not a V/8 but 1/2 of a good one with 4V)

Any that I missed?

Willie Pep.

Born in Middletown ,Ct, one day after my dad. They became friends later on, as my dad was a member of the Stagehands Union, and would run into Willie here and there.

Now back to our program :

I think Billy covered most of the V-8 's .

I'll work on that, but meanwhile, 1979 Monza 196 Buick V-6 , 2700 # w / driver in the bottom 6 cyl class.

You mean Q@2924 or P@2762....Which you might actually have a chance to make the car weigh... I'd like to see a 302 Mav weigh 2600 with the interior in it like the 71' is listed for O or 2519 @N.. fat chance....

Without doing the research on the others how possible is it to get the original combos listed down to these feather light weights?? the 71' Mav has a bogus shipping weight listing if you look at all the other years.. No one claims a 71' cause you can't get light enough to take atvantage.....
