weight of a '39 Ford Tudor sedan

I'm currently building a '39 Ford Tudor sedan, and I'm curious as to how much this thing may weigh when I get it all done. It's all steel, stock frame (boxed front and rear), MII front, 9" rear, and here's the kicker, a 460 powerplant with a toploader.

Any idea what this will weigh? I'm looking for similiar combinations, if yours has a small ford or chevy, I can calculate my potential weight from that if you have yours.

I know a SBC or SBF would be easier to install, etc etc, but I'm an old (well 32 yr old) drag racer, and there's no substitute for cubic inches. THis will be a street driven car, and the torque output of a 460, even a mild build will motorvate me down the road quite nicely and not have to wind the snot out of it to do it Plus the 460 will have aluminum heads, intake and water pump to cut down the weight.
