Really not sure why this wagon is still listed for sale but maybe it looks too good to be true. If it would have been this nice and Colonial Red, I might have talked the wife into it...

V8, automatic, twin traction, back up lights, signal-seek radio, split bench and dual head rests, tissue dispenser, factory rubber cargo cover... whats not to love!

Beautiful car. I would like to have it. Not sure where the idea of a "signal seeking radio" came from. It's just a standard push button radio.

I guess the area above the dial does not stick out far enough for it to be AC-2981. Wonder why they did not have "Studebaker" in the chrome bezel?

That is a really nice Lark wagon -- someone needs to give it a good home.

At the price it could be a great entry into the old car hobby --

It looks like a nice wagon. I traded a 1960 Lark VIII wagon for my Zip Van.

You blew it, you didn't tell Her that it has a Beautiful Ginger and Cocoa Interior! :D Rachael Ray would LOVE it!

From a distance those '58-'61 Delco PB Radios always APPEAR to have the Wonder Bar, but it is just a Simulated one!
It's a Cargo Floor MAT not Cover, those WERE available also.

Super nice wagon... but while we may see the price as reasonable, many see Studebakers as an off brand not worth much. Drop it to $5k and it will probably move out the door to it's new home

Thanks.

That's a beautiful wagon, and looks like it should be worth the price.

Maybe William Tecumseh Sherman could march over there and see it for Lark truck. He knows the city well. Ed

NO! We don't need Sherman or anyone like him coming here through again.
We had enough damage down here during The War of Northern Aggression (that's what my momma always called it).

Okay, I'll weigh in. As long as rust is not an issue in any part of the body, roof, or doors etc... then it is worth buying, of course with what I was taught from my grandfather was to never pay full price, so 5K would be a steal. I am partial to wagons, especially of the Studebaker elk as my first Stude was a 61 wagon.

I want it but I would have to go over it with a fine tooth comb because of the new paint job. Mechanicals are easy.

Wow! I drove one like this during my junior year in high school. The interior was red, the bench seat was not split and the dash was not padded - but, otherwise, the car looks virtually the same. That little Lark was unexpectedly peppy, and it surprised a number of newer cars at stoplight drag races.

It was great fun at the time - but now, I cringe when I think of how I abused that car.

Congratulations, I love your car! There's no doubt that you will like it. I have an original, much like it, in my collection. Mine was in a garage for 38 years, and when I was asked to look at it ten years ago, I did it out of a sense of duty. I had no intention of adding a 60 wagon to my collection. That was until I saw the original car, the condition of which was unbelievable.

If your experience has been anything like mine, you are going to find a level of positive response, that you never expected. The ugly duckling of the Studebaker line, has become extremely rare, and much loved by both Studebaker people and non-Studebaker car people alike. "Humphrey" has gained almost a cult status in the PNW. Humphrey's fan base often catches me off guard, when people that I have never met, start talking to me about him, and his unique story. For me saving an original car has turned into one of the most gratifying experience in my fifty years of car ownership. Be prepared for a very special Studebaker experience.

The MAIN thing, maybe not the ONLY thing, that gets me excited about these cute '59 & '60 Larks is the Fantastic Regal Interior and Exterior Trim! :!:

They did SUCH a great job of dressing these up from the Very Basic and Plain "Deluxe" models, those I have NO interest in, because I know there is Much "Better" out there. ;)

Congrats on your purchase! We were hoping someone in the Atlanta area would have stepped up and offered to inspect the car for my young (ok, 30ish) friend, but zilch! Time and distance were not on our side.
Had this car been posted here when it was first put on Craigslist a month ago the outcome may have been in our favor. The seller (the deceased owner's Father) is heading back to Tenn. soon, and we were not able to pull off the inspection/purchase fast enough.
Enjoy the ride, and if you ever decide to pass it on, please let us know.

Yes, I know what you mean. I have owned both Deluxe and Regal models of early Larks. They were all V8s. Especially in the interiors, there is a big step up going from the Deluxe to the Regal.

Great news! When you guys get it, please make sure you put the info on the '60 Lark registry here on the forum (http://forum.studebakerdriversclub.com/showthread.php?82980-1960-Lark-forum-registry) - and hope you have fun with it - looked like a nice car.
