I believe the panels to cover the windows was an option but, I defer to others more knowledgable.

I think I read in a TW articel some years ago that they were an option.

The panels were an option. They are listed in the parts book with the quarter glass. They came in a kit or individual service parts. I would think you'd be able to make a pattern from a good piece of glass.

Let's see, there is a cute '59 2 door wagon in Seamist Green on the cover and page 10 reveals the same photo that Dick posted with the following text: "A 1959 Lark Panel Wagon. The panel wagon was 'created' by simply attaching special panels over the rear side windows of station wagons. The panels were part of a $27 Panel Wagon kit."

This is part of an extensive article by Fred Fox. In looking for this issue I realized that I do not have the July 1996 edition. [:0]:(

Yes, Dick, there were a few of these "made" in the sense the 'Panel Delivery Kits' were an option for the 2 door wagons. I recall that a '59 Sedan Delivery was at the York Swap Meet for two years running around '01-'02. It was painted a medium metallic brown, almost UPS brown with the metallic added in.

Another little known model was the 1958 Scotsman 2dr wagon that was also available with a 'Panel Delivery Kit'. Darn I wish I could post pix. I've tried several times and get nothing. I really am a flop as as a techie!

An easy Phantom would be to put real metal (welded panels, faired in to look like a genuine rear quarter stamping) on one of these and do away with the glass parts altogether. Maybe put masonite interior panels inside to give it a finished look!;)

I've wondered that forever! There's a early 90s Plymouth Sundance- 2dr. sedan- NOTCHBACK- around here with the rear quarter windows paneled over [?][:o)][?] Belongs to a courier service...

My only guess is either security reasons, or extra ad space, or both... I just don't get it...

I really believe that WAS the main reason! Security, no commercial Co. wanted their "stuff" to be be seen. Remember Sedan Deliveries were used a lot for Florists & also Funeral Homes for "body" pickup and delivery so in the case of the latter, you can see why "black-out" was the way to go! [:0]

I also do not know how many kits were produced, but there was another picture of panel wagons with the name of a grocery store on the vehicles which could mean they were actually sold units. Also, the 58 had the panels attach on the inside of the vehicle. There is one of these with all the panels and a proper body tag which was added to regular body tag on the firewall. This unit is locate in the Mankato MN area and was used by a traveling salesman.

At that time, at least in New York State, vehicles with or without windows in the rear area were insured and registered different from each other.
An example of this was my Zip Van. If it had no windows in the rear sides and no rear seats, it would be registered as a commercial vehicle. Since it had one rear side window and something of seats along the side (it was used to transport mailmen to the beginnings of their routes), I had to register it as a station wagon.

Funny you should mention such an idea. We have a VERY nice '59 Lark Sedan Delivery (2dr. wagon) here in our chapter built by the late Steve Schumacher. He built it with what appear to be stamped body panels rather than the factory "bolt-on" kit. The area where the rear windows would have been is actually solid metal with the interior finished off very nicely. It is painted Omaha Orange, a commercial/truck color and has stenciled letters on the side stating "Studebaker Parts", which was Steve's business. The car is now in his daughter & grandson's possession and was just diplayed last week at a large annual show we have at a local mall. I'll see if I can get some pictures to show you-all; it is a neat vehicle!

I believe that the kit that you have is for a 1958 and not for a Lark. The 1958s replaced the glass with metal panels. The Larks used Masonite panels over the glass.

If anyone intersted, I have a sedan delivery kit still unused - reported to be the last one out of SASCO. Either sell me a real nice 60 Lark 2 dr. wagon, or I'll sell you the kit.It's 2 METAL panels with appropriate weather stripping. 1-519-893-2078.

I believe that the kit that you have is for a 1958 and not for a Lark. The 1958s replaced the glass with metal panels. The Larks used Masonite panels over the glass.

Gary; do you see this making any significant difference? Since most of these few cars were done as "kits" pretty much anything would be fine, as rare as they are! [^]

We all know that the '54 to '59's are all the same, so '58 to '59 would be no big deal! :)

'60 and '61 2dr. Wagons do have a slightly different cargo area window, so it would not fit those.

My kit is a few miles from my house in a rented garage, so I'm going by memory (and I'm over 50 - yipes) but the part number on the kit is for "61. It will obviously fit "60 as well (and the handful of special order "62 2dr. wagons). The tag (written by SASCO ?) says something to the effect that it may fit other years.
