My car is similar to yours but I have a 9" rear and lexan front and rear windows and aluminum heads. My car is 2733 w/o me in it and 80 lbs of ballast in the back bumper. My aluminum heads were 85 lighter than my Doves.

At 3345 I am guessing it is a hatchback? Gt's and hatchbacks do way a bit more. 2800-3000 sounds correct.

My back half 83 weighed 3085 with an A460 heads and A460 Block and my fat butt (250#) in it, Only fiberglass on it was the hood at that time.

It also has T-tops and the guts for the bumpers are removed.
