Lightbulb Car Weigh In

The other week i decided i would ask ford for the official weights of Falcons from EA to AU. Below is the details i got back...


The requested weights (kg) of the vehicles (sedan) are as follows:
EA = Falcon GL & Fairmont(3.9L 5spd) 1431, Fairmont Ghia(3.9L MPEFI Auto) 1548.

EB = Falcon GL & Fairmont(3.9L 5spd) 1435, Fairmont Ghia(3.9L MPEFI Auto) 1548.

EBII = Falcon GL & Fairmont(4.0L 5spd) 1463, Fairmont Ghia(4.0L MPEFI Auto) 1530.

ED = GLi(4.0L 5spd)1484, Futura(4.0L 5spd)1496, XR(4.0L 5spd)1522, Fairmont(4.0L 5spd)1559, Ghia(4.0L 5spd)1568.

EF = GLi(6cyl)1536/(8cyl)1572, Futura & XR(6cyl)1556/(8cyl)1591, Fairmont(6cyl)1594/(8cyl)1618, Ghia(6cyl)1600/(8cyl)1624.

EL = GLi(6cyl)1536/(8cyl)1576, Futura & XR(6cyl)1557/(8cyl)1597, Fairmont(6cyl)1593/(8cyl)1635, Ghia(6cyl)1605/(8cyl)1645.

AU = Forte(6cyl)1493/(8cyl)1513, Futura(6cyl)1520/(8cyl)1540, XR(6cyl)1510/(8cyl)1530, Fairmont(6cyl)1530/(8cyl)1540, Ghia(6cyl)1640/(8cyl)1660


Looks like the Auto packs on a couple more kg's

Re: Car Weigh In

well a bit of general info really. Everyone says that EA's are really light, but I personally didnt know that an EB1 was only 4 kgs heavier.

I should get my car to join the FF weight reduction thread

It seems the windsor is worth an extra 40kgs That means I'd better ditch 40 Perhaps I can port the heads and remove 40kg worth of meat

AU....XR(6cyl)1510/(8cyl)1530
This is a difficult one. The AU XR6 HP is 1510kg and the AU XR8 is 1530. This means that the V8 Windors is about 80kgs LIGHTER than the I6??

Why Lighter? Because the XR8 has IRS, the XR6 HP didnt. The IRS alone is about 100kgs heavier than the Live axle.

Something seriously wrong with these numbers.

Just checked my AU XR6 specs brochure

AU XR6 1530kg.....For the XR6 HP!! Add about another 100kgs for the VCT and another 30 or forty kgs again for the XR8!
