weight removal process
The car has started its weight loss program. Older C3’s are heavy! Under the hood, the AC compressor has been removed along with the condenser, although nothing has been touched under the dash. The brass radiator and clutch fan have been replaced with a lighter aluminum and electric fan. All emission equipment has been removed as is no longer required. The ancillary hydraulic power steering assist has been removed. In the back, the spare tire has been removed and the multi leaf steal spring replaced by a fiberglass mono leaf. With a few other areas not mentioned weight has decreased by about 200lbs. Factory weight was 3,500lbs.
