Default Hearse weight?

Hello fellow professional car enthusiasts,
Do any of you know how much the 1965 Superior Cadillac Royale Combo weighs? I am putting together an information plaque on my vehicle for a vintage car show.

I suppose the answer depends on how exact you want to be. I think you could say "approximately 6000 lbs." and be within the ballpark. I've had three of my coaches weighed when I needed new tires, and they all came in between 5800 and 5900 lbs. After having three of them all come in within 100 lbs. of each other, I started assuming that 6000 lbs. was a good approximation for all of them.

a combo will be a little more and a ambulance (caddy ) heaver.

I always used the just under 6500 to be safe when talking to a shipper.
