Default Car weight, 79 Malibu

What can you get a 79 Malibu down to with a MS cage and SBC with stock suspension? What does yours weigh?

Thatís interesting, Iím looking at getting one down to 2800 with a SBC and no driver.
How much did the bumpers save?
What do you have for brakes front/rear?
Thanks

Stock brakes front and rear. Not sure on bumpers, 40lbs each maybe, thinking about putting stock ones back on.

I has a 9 inch rear and a 10 gallon cell in the trunk. With a aluminum head sbc it weighs in at 3075 without me. It has all glass windows and 3.5 inch exhaust. Stock brakes suspension etc bogart wheels in front welds in the back. Hope that helps.
