Brian is close regarding Classic Roadsters’ solution.

The provided a fiberglass weight box which holds 150 pounds of sand. It is mounted directly behind the grill shell. Top of the box is even with the top of the body side panels. It is trapezoid shaped to fit the body as it angles in towards the grill shell. It’s about a foot and a half deep and a foot long (front to back).

The weight helps, but the ride is still pretty stiff unless you soften the front end.
