Chassis weight 13/60


Recommended Posts

Hi

No Idea of weight. But I lifted mine one end at a time.? Most of the time though it was on a home made rotator, and It had the Turrets etc removed for cleaning and Painting

That's great thank you, certainly gives me the roof bar option.

Had one off the ratchet straps around the chassis and through the rear windows so only way it was falling off was to take the roof with it.

An interesting drive.

For future reference,    the best info I could get was that a bare spitfire chassis was 47Kg.  Not sure if this was with or without turrets.  My best estimate of a bare herald chassis is thus about 60kg.      Turns out that the shipping issue is not the weight but the length of it.   

 

Thanks for all your help.

Dont know if it is of any Help. But we used to carry a Mirror Dinghy on roof racks, Using first a Ford Escourt Estate and later A Chrysler 2L, and a Ford Cortina Estate, All up a Mirror weighs in at around 100Kg?. If I remember correctly. I know it needed 2 to put on the racks but that had more to do with size than weight.
