It'll weigh in bare bones at about 3100 with the T-5. The AOD car will weigh in about 3150. Add a couple minus a couple.

The exact amount being on the door sticker? Not likely. That's the GMVW or gross maximum vehicle weight. That should be around 3800lbs.

GMVW might be 3800lbs but remember, that is the max. amount of weight allowed plus the weight of the car. If you subtract the max. weight(usually 850-900lbs) you get the actual weight of the car.
Correct me if I am wrong though.

FYI,
Here is mine on scales, with S-trim, subframes, Rollcage, and custom rear suspension... (lots of extra weight):

The difference in GMVW and curb weight depends on the vehicle.

Usually it includes the cars maximum capacity of people at 150ea. Then payload. In this case you can have 4 150lb passengers (600 total) and probably a hundo or two in the trunk. That would be a total of 3800-3900lbs.

If you had a '78 Lincoln Town car, the vehicle weighs in at around 5100 I'd guess, add 6x150 for passengers (900) plus trunk probably like 400lbs and you come up with 6300. Not too shabby, ours had a GMVW of 6375lbs I think. What a tank, 22'11" long.

A truck would be even more extreme. They have between a 1000-2000lb capacity on a full size, + passengers.
