Yea Mark, and leave the paint and wheels as they are. Leave the rusted single tail pipe in place, but use turn-downs with quiet mufflers. That might freak some people out;)

That Lark appears not to have an engine, because of the front end height. But, the description says it does. I noted the sellers' references to "Northern Connecticut" and "Southern Connecticut". I did not realize that that particular state was LARGE enough in area to have various geographical regions. :)

It does have an engine, but it's not installed. I was surprised that this car did not seem to have much rust which would be expected coming from the northeast. Also, the interior was in amazingly good condition.

Would be a nice sleeper.

if you look at all the pictures, it shows the engine out and apart. The little car looks like a solid piece though

It's engine is currently in pieces. A rebuild attempt that never got further than some disassembly. Then the seller realized that parts were too expensive compared to other vintage autos. Kind of a sad excuse for a car that's been in the family since new![V]
I'd LOVE to have any one of the cars back that my dad drove during my younger years, but I'm QUITE certain each of them has been recycled SEVERAL times since then. In fact, maybe some tool I've used that came from across the Pacific, has had trace amounts of our family '53 Nash Statesman or '48 Chevy fastback or even dad's '61 Mercury Monterey.[V]

He's obviously not aware of the club. He states: "Parts are not as easily or cheaply available as other vintage cars".

I'm not sure what he's been smoking, but he should try to buy some body parts for a 57 Chevy:D

OK, I have a rebuilt R2/ 4 speed worth about 7K. If the car could be put in my driveway for a $1000, and spent say 3K on paint, brakes and odds and ends, I'd be about 11K in the car. That's getting up there for a clone in my opinion.

I think you'd still have room to make money on the car JDP- maybe not a SDC member (no offence, but we dont like to spend lots of money!), but on Ebay perhaps. Clones have now become accepted in the collector car world. If it's done right (and I am sure you have the bits to do it), I think you could pull 15-17k out of it. That's my opinion and what I am going to eventually do with my 63 now that I just got a phone call from a guy who is going to have an R2 all fresh and ready to drop in to my car with a T10 all rebuilt to boot! [:p] Yes, Christmas may come a bit early for me this year!

That's pretty much how mine started...the Dutch Boy paint can with the brush still in it, left stuck to the trunk floor.[:0] Amazing how even old house paint would sorta' keep the surface rust to a minimum. Thank goodness for the good ole' Aircraft Stripper...made pretty quick work of the paint removal, with two coats.:)

For the $7000 dollars (JDP's R2/4 speed) I would buy a '98-02 wrecked
F-body and swap the LS1 engine and 6 speed trans into it. Might even
put the whole subframe and rear end in it. Leave the outside the way
it is and embarrass just about everything on the road.;)

Yah .. thats because its a 6 cyl, too much work/cost to go Stude V8.

That'd be one way to go- and a good one at that... but I'm dreaming of building something all Studebaker with an r2 setup [:p]

I've seen, heard, and driven different LS1s; nice, but I've never been in or heard an r2... I
One could do an LS1 in anything- just doesn't interest me personally!

Maybe I'll finally get to hear an r2 run at SB.....[^]

BTW, I found out the Avanti no longer holds the record I metioned in the interview.

Wouldnt an R2 sound pretty much like an R1, or any other Studebaker?
The only difference is the blower. So you might have an extra whine
that drowns out the gear whine from the timing gears. Then there is
the standard "tick" from the solid lifter driven valves.

I agree with wanting to keep a Studebaker Studebaker powered, but the
problem is money. An LS1 is a gaurenteed 300 hp, and thats TODAYS way
of rating hp, not the 60's. Also, the LS1 is all aluminum, which is
going to weigh less then the skybolt 6. In an already light Lark, its
a lethal combo of speed - if you can get traction. An R2 is rated at
290 hp, and thats the 60's way of rating, probably transfers to less
then 200 hp on todays scale. I havent seen a conversion chart.

Either way .. its fun to dream.;)

Your points are valid, Tom... but for me, in this case, it's not about how much power it can dyno, or how fast it may be; it's just about letting a performance Stude being a performance Stude! [8D] I drove racecars for 24 years; had lots of fun, lots of success, took a few hard crashes, etc... but I still love to feel an engine pulling hard, and love the sound(s) of an engine singing it's tune [:I] I'm not interested in stacking it up against others; just for my own enjoyment [8D] I've done it in Chevy (you name it), Ford (SB), and MoPar (BB)... now I'd like to try it in a Stude!

Yeah, I'm dreaming; but this is a dream I'm going to make happen in the not-too-distant future :D

Well ... I have the short block available for sale, I am keeping the
heads off it, but the lower end is stout and less then 30k on it. It
is not a full flow block though. Its from a no-option car, so just a
single pulley on the front hub. You would want to use the thick head
gaskets on it to lower the compress in a supercharged application. It
was used for a Levesque GM trans conversion, so no bellhousing. Lots
of miles left in this shortblock, and all quality parts.

It's not just the blower whine that makes a R2 sound different, you can hear a change in the muffler tone when the engine comes on boost.

Though perhaps the most beautiful sound I've ever heard first hand coming from a Stude would have to be that of a '63 Avanti R4 clone. The sound coming from that car is one not to be forgotten. [^]

Well, riding in it was quite an experiace too. :D

$305 as of right now with over 5 days left- plus it's 265 miles away...

We'll see where it's at the last day; I tend to be a last-minute bidder ;)

From the ad.

Motivation for selling:

I'm just not interested in rebuilding a 43-year-old Studebaker. Parts are not as easily or cheaply available as other vintage cars, and the body is in too good a shape to turn into something custom (in my opinion). I would rather someone who is interested in Studebakers take possession and bring it back to its former glory or use it for parts. Also, I am worried that without proper storage (which I just have not had garage space for these past 7 years) it will continue to rot away in the back yard. Besides, i’ve caught the ‘all things British’ bug, and have enough oil stains on my drive to last me for years.


If he doesn't sell this car, someone please do him a favor and tell him about SDC! [8D]

UPDATE:

I decided I was interested in this car; so I e-mailed the seller and asked about the front floors, and if he could send a few pics; this was his reply:

Unfortunatly, someone local who saw the auction came by and took a good look at it. He has several studebakers and told me that, indeed, under the floor is where the most common rot is. (This was news to me). He pulled up the mats and saw lots of floor rot. On the bright side, he was impressed with the engine bay and trunk condition (rust-wise). The car is stored at my mothers house in CT, and I live in boston, so I can't take pictures in time for you. I hope this answers your question.

-Jim P.

I was intending to bid last-minute, as is usually my style; but I'm out now...

If you're interested, this is your heads-up... on the bright side, the seller gets points for honesty in my book! [^]

Where exactly is the rust?? You might still get those pics. My dads
64 Hawk was missing the floor from the hump to the door sil, but the
door mount structure was completely solid. Studes rust at the floor,
so I wouldnt be too concerned, until you know the specifics. "Lots of
floor rot" can mean different things to different people, could be an
entire panel eaten away, or simply rough metal. Also keep in mind a
"local" guy who has a lot of Studes, might be looking for another easy
kill. He could be making it out to this person to be WORSE then it is
so he can get it himself![B)]

Sent a reply thanking him for his honesty and just got this reply:

"I updated the listing with that information... If it is already bid up too high (with the new information) for the highest bidder, I'll allow him to walk on the deal. And if that happens, I will contact you.

I'm not out to screw anyone and just want the car to go to a good home.

Thanks
-Jim P."

As he said, more pics aren't possible; so it's hard to tell... but based on his attitude, if the deal falls through, I may still make a deal...;)
