    I was looking at a 1989 Ford F -450 stakebody.(12') It has some miles on it but well maintained. The GVW is 14500 lbs. My question is what is the approximate weight of the truck empty? I'm guessing about 8000lbs. The engine is a 460 with a 5 speed manual. I know it is going to use gas but it's what I can afford right now. I presently have a pickup, which I'm keeping, and outgrew. Thanks Matt

    I'd say 8000 is close.I have a 90 'f350 4dr dually and with me in it.(220) It weighs 6800 on landfill scales.
