To get an idea of how the Corvair hit the scales, we drove to Suspension Technologies in Torrance, California. There Tony Alacron weighed the Corvair at each axle with Archibald on board. The total weight with driver and a full tank of gas was 3,218 pounds. The front axle came in at 1,385 pounds and the rear at 1,834 pounds. This provided a 43 percent front and 57 percent rear weight balance.
