They are not as heavy as they look.

Oh so true.

How many times have I heard people comment a '55/6/7 Chevy being a gas hog or a dinosaur?

Want to see a Classic Chevy dwafted? Park it next to one of today's SUVs or duel extended cabs.

Back to the original question. A 2-door Sedan is about 3400 lbs.

Like rj57 says...very close to 3400#........The 2 dr sedan is the lightest model, and they are lighter than they look.............and quite well balanced compared to some cars.

I was going to say that I thought the title on my 56 210 sedan had the weight at 3100lbs, but that was a long time ago :D .
