I missed one also. I thought the Skytop was first offered in 61.

It was interesting to see Sam Miller's 1958 Packard wagon on Bill's website. Back in the mid to late '70's Sam was starting to build the models that he became noted for. At the time Virginia required semi annual safety inspections and Sam's answer was to create an epoxy "bird dropping" that effectively covered the inspection sticker and allowed him to continue driving after it expired! You have to love Studebaker ingenuity. :D

Unfortunately I do not know the history of this car, though Leonard or Frank Drumheller may. At the time Sam was inhabiting the basement of his mother's house which had limited storage. The '64 convertible that Leonard has was in the garage, but others came and went with some frequency, often to be stored on Tom Roemer's farm.

As best I recall this one arrived around 1976 or 1977 when the black '51 did. It was licensed and driven (thus the need to hide the inspection sticker). I moved to Richmond and sold my '61 Hawk in 1982 and was out of Studebakers until 1999. In that time Sam moved to Pulaski and then back to Charlottesville and we lost touch with each other.

I don't know any of the history of the Packard wagon, either. Frank would know more than I do. It seems to me that Sam told me that he took it to a Packard meet one time and got snubbed! I think I saw it on eBay a couple of years ago.

Leonard,

Per page 7 of the October '82 Turning Wheels. A photo included as part of Fred Fox's coverage of the '61 Larks has a caption that reads:
" Another styling concept INTRODUCED in 1961 was the Skytop sunroof option. The Skytop was available for $185 extra on any Lark sedan or hardtop. The option was continued through 1963."

If the answer "1960" IS correct, then I missed only one answer.;)

I'm with you. There was no '60 Skytop (unless it was a prototype or something).

It still boils down to the fact that the question was WHAT YEAR MODEL Lark could it be had on - not what calendar year could you technically have ordered one.:)

Hey Guys; I don't know much on the backgound of Sam's 1958 Packard station wagon other than it showed up around 1973-75 at T. Roamer's farm where Sam stored a number of his vehicles. I may have some old photos that could pinpoint the time. I do remember Sam bought it in Roanoke from a used car lot. He said it was originally all green, but the first owner didn't like the all-green look and had the roof painted white. To my knowledge, Sam was the second owner. He always intended to "restore" this vehicle as he purchased a number of NOS parts (some one-onlys) for it over the years. I believe the parts went with the wagon when he sold it shortly before his death. I tried to convince him not to sell, but he just didn't have the space to keep it and it was deteriorating. If I had had the space, I would have seriously made an effort to buy it.
I recall that Sam quit driving it at one time because the tranny leaked so bad and he hated to get out, raise the awkward hood and refill. Sometime later, he started driving it again- I found out he had drilled a hole in the floorboard, extended the fill tube so he could refill from within the vehicle. The wagon cetainly was a rare one and it attracted a lot of attention when he took it to local meets. I don't believe he drove it much after 1980, as I recall at least four storage spots in the 80's and 90's. Yes, Sam was an innovator when 'neccessity' arose.

Another person who might be able to shed some light on the Packard wagon is Nelson Driver of Waynesboro, VA. I know Nelson hauled the car around for Sam to different storage areas, one of which was Nelson's own storage building. I'll ask Nelson the next time I see him if he can add anything to this story.

Speaking of 'Skytops', I recall two "Skytops" in the 70's in this area:

Tom Roamer's 1961 Saffron Yellow 4 door Regal VIII. I have no idea what happened to this car. It was a nice one.

Sam Miller/Gerald Hiter's 1962 black Cruiser that they bought as a parts car. It was being used as a dog shelter at the time here in Louisa County. Gerald cut the top off for Sam, good parts removed and the remainder crushed in the early 80's. I still have the body tag- 62V-Y9, 5290, but not the serial number. This was in the days before I understood the serial number was more important to collect than the body tag for ID purposes.

I totally agree with all the posters that the 1961 Studebaker line was the first with Skytops. I don't know where Bill got the 1960 date, as Bill is darn accurate for all the things he has on his site. He was the former owner of my '60 Regal VI 4 door and he has photos on several pages on his site. He also has several photos of my son's '65 2 door Commander street rod- it was a Car of the Month, I believe in '99.

Tom Roamer's 1961 Saffron Yellow 4 door Regal VIII. I have no idea what happened to this car. It was a nice one.

Sam Miller/Gerald Hiter's 1962 black Cruiser that they bought as a parts car. It was being used as a dog shelter at the time here in Louisa County. Gerald cut the top off for Sam, good parts removed and the remainder crushed in the early 80's. I still have the body tag- 62V-Y9, 5290, but not the serial number. This was in the days before I understood the serial number was more important to collect than the body tag for ID purposes.

I totally agree with all the posters that the 1961 Studebaker line was the first with Skytops. I don't know where Bill got the 1960 date, as Bill is darn accurate for all the things he has on his site. He was the former owner of my '60 Regal VI 4 door and he has photos on several pages on his site. He also has several photos of my son's '65 2 door Commander street rod- it was a Car of the Month, I believe in '99.

This is crappy in resolution, but it's a picture of a picture - and not a great photo to start with!

This is the only photo I have of my old 58 Packard wagon. This would have been about 1976 or '77 (When I lived in Smyrna GA). In the photo I was being silly (gee, that's never happened before!) and mimicing the widemouth grin of the Packard. I drove this thing about a year before tearing into it because the engine was so tired. I never got it back together before a divorce changed my priorities.
To the left in this pic, you can see the nose of the 55 President State sedan that I drove and just behind it, you cqan see the roof of a '63 Lark that belonged to a friend of mine.
The wagon ended up in the hands of Richard Forgay and we've talked about it's fate here before. It's not clear that it escaped the crusher when Richard was evicted from his shop awhile back. Frankly, I'd rather not know.[V]

Ya know Biggs, Richard showed up at our last chapter meeting. I wish I had've thought to ask him about it. [V][V]

I'll try to remember. That was the same day I called Bill Frick Jr.; I had quite a bit on my mind. [8D]

Hello Folks --

O.K. -- I messed up and I am ashamed!!! :(

The correct answer to the sunroof question is 1961 -- even I know better without looking it up -- the answer has been changed to be correct. :)

As punishment, I will not drive a Studebaker for one week. :(

And thanks to all of you who follow and contribute to my Studebaker Page. :D

Mr. Biggs (Bob)
I'm almost positive your car is still alive (barely, as opposed to being crushed) and still in Richard's possession. When he moved, he sold a lot of cars he had, but he kept yours and another wagon..I believe it may have been a 57', black in color. If you want his phone number, e-mail me and I'll give it to you. I can check to see if they're for sale.:)

Dan, that's good to hear. It's too rare (and FUNKY) a vehicle to have ended up as some LG appliances.:(

Bill, no need to apologize.:D You have a great site and I love seeing what the Stude of the month is. As far as the wrong answer goes, we (I) just like being a smarty-pants.[:I] No harm, no foul!
