    Seems pretty light. My 88 Thunderbird LX with every option but a sunroof, full tank of gas, aluminum headed 5.0, aluminum driveshaft, and 8.8 rear axle comes in around 3550lbs.

    Dual power seats are heavy

    Yeah but still 165lbs more stuff. With iron heads and a steel driveshaft it would be even more.

    On the other hand with me in the car it's about 3710lbs, so about what a Coyote Mustang weighs.

    How much do power seats weigh in these cars?
