These pieces came from a box in the backseat with my 63 Lark project but I'm fairly sure they don't belong to my car.
Recognize them?
Thanks!

Pretty sure they go on the 1/4 panels just in front of the wheels, a "stone guard" if you will

Yes Tom they are the Standard on '64-'66 Cruiser, rear fender stone Guards also an AC Accessory on all other models. They will fit all 1962 to 1966 Lark Types except Wagons, including yours! [:0]

Looks like 2 Rights and a Left, the point goes down.

And speaking of stainless from a Stude....

Last night the wifey 'n me bought a new set of stainless Lenox flatware - service for twelve.[^] Made in China, of course.

This morning I set about unwrapping all of the pieces so's I could give them an initial bath in the dishwasher. These things were double-boxed, bubble-wrapped and individually sleeved in plastic. After working thru the two boxes and the bubble-wrap, I slid the first piece - a dinner fork - into my hand.

ZAP!!! There was a BURST of a vision, like a flash of an image on a dark movie screen. It lasted a second at best, but the image is seared into my brain. For that fleeting streak of a moment, I was confronted with an instant replay of the few stainless tidbits that I'd left on that Wagonaire hulk that the scrap guys hauled off 4 months ago![:0]
Surely these eating utensils aren't borne of those very stainless mouldings! Right??? [V]

Mr Biggs, Now that is a horrible thought. ! ! ! Are you trying to give me nightmares. ? ? ? ? ? I can see it now... Chinese undercover agents scouring the countryside with towtrucks.... looking for poor, wayfaring Studebakers to kidnap and load on a container ship to take to China and make slaves out of them... oh, the humanity.! ! To be used in such a diabolical plot. I'm gonna lock mine up just in case.

Guess it's a good thing that all of ours are too rusty to be used as scrap.

No worries, those utensils are probably made with more lead than Stude stainless! Yikes.;)

So, you're saying there's possibly a good side? High lead content means my lifespan is shortened, and as a consequence, I get to spend less time fretting over the fate of this metal collection I've been fostering!
