How much Does a 1955-59 Chevy Truck Weigh?

I'd like to find the Curb or Dry Weight of a 1956 Chevy truck.. literature weight
from a pamphlet or book..or your weight when you put yours on a scale...any 55 through 59 weight info would be helpful. I'd love to have the factory
stated weights from the owners manual.. thanks.

You should have asked the guys at "55 to 59 chevy truck owners" thread in the hotrodders lounge you will get a different weight depending on what engine what bed(step side or fleet side)and if it is a long bed or short bed.With a big block 427,700r4 trans, front & rear sway bars,traction bars,extra leaf springs,front disks,11 inch rear drum brakes,bed cover,tow hitch and under bed spare tire my 58 is over 4000 lbs.There is a thread on here somewere that has posted a bunch of the factory manuals that you can look through.I sent him a 59 Apache manul to add to his thread last fall.You should be able to find it with the search function.Have fun with your 56 and post up in the thread "55 to 59 chevy truck owners".I would love to see pictures of your truck and so would the rest of the guys
