How much does it weigh?

My 73 Grabber door jam ID sticker says 3621 GVWR. Is that really what this car weighs?

I drove mine to the dump a couple weeks ago, and on their scale, it was 2980 with spare tire, more than 3/4 tank gas, tool box, etc.

Not sure if you could even get a big bumpered, heavy doored car to weigh in at 3600.

Very common misconception. GVWR is the max weight of that vehicle fully loaded with occupants and cargo.

My first Mav v8 auto, stripped for weight went 2680 without driver and little fuel.
