My 87GT with T-Tops weighed in at 3340 without me in it and a half tank of gas. These cars are almost exactly the same so I would bet they are very close.

Edit: This was back in 93 when I weighed it, so it was still basically stock with no major mods.

I wander why the AOD weighs 115 pounds more than the T5 on the GT convertible, but only weighs 55 pounds more on the GT.

These are the closest weights I've seen though, most over estimate the weight of the convertible and under estimate the weight of a hatch. But these # do under estimate the weight of the LX sedan.

The 3191 sounds about right for the hatch with T5. On the scale, it was 3395 with me in it. I weigh 225 lbs. I had removed the A/C at the time.

I think it's because the vert weighs more no matter what. Extra bracing, for example the stupid useless X-brace under the front. And also the vert top stuff weighs more than a roof.

No dude I mean for example:

GT convertible AOD 3445 LX convertible AOD 3300
GT convertible _ T5 3330 LX convertible _ T5 3240

difference in lbs
_________________ 115 ___________________60


Basically what I'm saying is the automatic transmission weighs about 60lbs more than the T5 in all the cars except for the GT convertible. In the GT convertible the AOD weighs 115 more than the T5.
