Can someone give me an idea of the weight of a 1962 bare body except for windshield and side glass. I am going to be swaping frames and I need to come up with some way to lift the body up. Was thinking of using a engine pulling cherry picker.
Any ideas or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks.

I don't know the exact weight but it is about 300 pounds. It is about one half as much as a comparable body made from steel (now that's a scary thought):laughing:

I think it is more than 300lbs, but at any rate there are a couple of other discussions on lifting the body. No matter how you wind up doing it, having 2 or 3 other folks around to help always makes it easier, providing they know you are the Chief and they are the Indians....
