I know you don't want guesses, but I think it's about 400 lbs. They're usually about 550, when completely assembled, so take off the intake, carb, distributor, water pump and heads and you have lost over 100 lbs., surely. Just guessing though

I believe a bare block weighs 165lbs. With the crank, rods and pistons, my guess is 250-300.
