Whats the Weight? 58 Chevy PU

Hello everyone, anyone know what a 58 Chevy PU Weighs? I have done some searches but cant seem to find anything. It has a Volare front end, 350 with iron heads and a TH350. I will take it down to the scales when its driving but I was Curious.

Thanks,
Jordon

Seems to me I seen it in print somewhere (so it must be true) that the '58 was around 5000 pounds.

I have a 57 Chevy pickup , 350/350 with a Mustang II frontend, it weighs about 3250 lbs. I work where there is a truck scale and have weighed all my cars.

3,245 lbs, I wrote it on the garage wall with the other weights. Thats with a half tank of gas. Your 58 will weigh a little more, it has 4 headlights
