Hello, I searched for this topic, but surprisingly found very little, what is the weight of a 86 Syncro with a stock 2.1L? I am planning on hauling a 86 syncro north from cali and need this info to borrow or rent a hauling truck.

Information that I have seen say somewhere between 3,500 and 4,000 pounds.

i weighed mine once, with a custom rear bumber, zetec motor, sound mat throughout, big brakes, rear disc, it weighed in at exactly 4000lbs.

not sure how much gas it had at the time. but i think 3700-4000 sounds dead on.
