Question Weight of a 460 big block

We are trying to find out how much a ford 460 big block weights. We are building a super pro ranger w/tube chassis and want to but a 460 in it but before we do we need to know how much it weights so everything can be adjusted before hand. (ie springs etc.) Thank you in advance

Re: Weight of a 460 big block

I read somewhere a while ago it was 720 lbs

There is no substitute for cubic inches but my pursuit sure closes the gap




*UPDATE * Pursuit has just run 11.763 and 116.18 mph making it Australias Quickest and fastest unopened boss as well as Australias Quickest and fastest naturally aspirated Boss

Yes complete, but probably included cast iron manifold and water pump

so with alloy heads and manifold do you think it would come down to the weight of a clevo whatever that is

573 lbs according to that link.One of the guys on fordmuscle just did an alloy head bb swap in a mustang and only gained 60 lbs in total over the clevo

I just returned from Weighing "The Yellow Monster"

We have a total weight gain of "Sixty Pounds"

With the Cleveland the weight slip was 3,700 pounds, with the 468 (aluminum head) BB the new weight slip is 3,760 pounds.

thats not bad at all, proves the myth wrong about all that extra weight problem. i know its over the front end but 30kg really aint that bad.

Re: Weight of a 460 big block

Yes then you move the battery to the back as well and it's nearly the same weight.
