Curb weight is just a tad heavier than you might think but not unbearable. My last 81 was a coupe and at the grain silo scales it weighed 1964 lbs. The 3tc is pretty reliable but are prone (at least ime) to oiling issues. Blueprinting the oilpump during a rebuild is a must. They will make nice power pretty easily and aftermarket support is pretty good still.
FI is expensive and imo only worth it if you are going turbo.
what do you mean blueprinting the oil pump?
i just wonder about because i live in denver and drive around a lot and change altitude a lot.
so would fi be better suited for that?
or can a carb handle it fine?
i know nothing of carbs really.
and now pics.
