Rob has it right, my 56 210 sedan weighed 3100lbs. At least that is what the title said.

55 - 210 when done weighed 3331 lbs.
383 stroker, 700R, Camaro rear-end, reinforced frame (extra 20lbs)
air, power windows, land rover bucket seats. (extra 40lbs)
So safe bet 3000-3300 lbs.

i believe 55's weigh more in the range of 3300 lbs than the mentioned 3150. i got a hardtop somewhat stripped down, 1 seat, v-8, fiberglass front clip, 3100 lbs, sedan 55 bbc weighs 3640, seats, stereo whole nine yards, power windows. so i'd assume around 33-3400 with sbc for real weight and models. both of the cars were weighed at a dmv station.
