This report presents the results of an analysis of the historical weight trends of passenger cars sold in the United States over a 16-year period, 1958 through 1973. In Volume 2, the general analysis technique, parameters examined, and data sources used are delineated. Section 3 presents a graphical display of study results, together with brief discussions of noted trends. It illustrates trends for sales distribution, curb weight, inertia test weight class, wheelbase and length, engine displacement, compression ratio, and accessory weights. An appendix of tables is included to summarize all parameters examined in terms of sales-weighted averages.
