It's unusual to see Studes at the car shows in my area, so when I saw this sweet '61 Lark wagon, I had to take pics!

It's a sweet little car, very clean. Transplanted OHV 6 with OD. It was wearing Colorado plates, but the owner (who's had it for about 2 weeks) said he bought it from someone in South Dakota.

We talked for a bit and he said it tops out about 50, due to the fact that he can't get the overdrive to work. I pointed him toward the Forum, so hopefully we'll have a new member with a lovely little Lark joining us soon!

Engine Transplant? What, a newer or better OHV Six? A V8 to Six swap? :confused:

That should still be the original engine in that car.

There is nothing early or late about single headlights on 1961 Larks. The Deluxe models came standard with single headlights (duals as an option) and Regal/Cruiser models came standard with dual headlights.

Sure looks like the one I saw on a transporter a few weeks ago. San Diego would have been a logical destination.

I got the impression it was not the original powerplant, but a correct replacement. Certainly looked fresh.
