1963 Parisienne convertible curb weight


 

Looking for the curb weight of a 1963 Parisienne convertible with a 327 automatic.

 

I cant find any weight information in the shop manuals or online regarding 1963 Parisienne convertible.

 

Ive found information on 1963 Impala convertible with a 327 automatic, and it says 3812 lbs.

 

https://www.automobile-catalog.com/make/chevrolet_usa/full-size_chevrolet_6gen/full-size_impala_2gen_convertible/1963.html#gsc.tab=0

 

Do you think that the Impala weight would be similar to a 1963 Parisiennes weight?

Thanks

The Catalog of Canadian Car ID Numbers lists a convertible 1963 Parisienne V8 ( doesn't say which size V8 so I suspect a 283 ) as having a curb weight of 3610 lbs

It also says that a 1963 Impala V8 convertible weighs 3620 lbs. ( Again I suspect this would be a 283 )

Baed on this it appears that a similarly equipped Impala is 10 lbs heavier than the Parisienne.

I'm surprised that the next generation (1965 and up) is so much heavier than the 1964 and down. A loaded big block Chevelle is not much lighter than an X frame B body.
