Would anyone have information as to how many 64 Larks were produced with the Laguna Blue exterior and the brown interior?
Thanks

Studebaker did not keep production information to this detail, but the information does exist. Someone would have to go through 46K production orders and sort by what you are looking for. You could do it or pay the SNM the approximately $1K that it would take in time.

How does that help? Do you have an R series car? I do not believe that an extrapolation from those numbers would be valid.

64 Daytona HDTP, R2, Power Shift,full package with 3.73:1 TT rear and factory AM FM radio in Laguna Blue exterior with brown interior. I do believe Mr. L that based on the above statement an extrapolation of sorts is quite possible. Do you not concur?

That is a fantastic car!
You do not need to extrapolate. Your car is clearly included in the data base given.
Now you know that it is one of 14, or less, Daytonas with an R series engine in that combination of colors.

This September 1989 issue has always been my favorite issue, a wealth of information about 64 R cars. Anyone that likes R cars should seek out this issue.

I looked in the issue again and there is a "crosstabulation of exterior color by interior color"
Strato Blue with
Blue interior 43 cars
Black interior 1 car
Brown interior 1 car
for a total of 45 cars
And there were 6 Laguna Blue R2's
So Ron you have a very rare car being the only car with Laguna Blue and Brown interior.
Now is it vinyl or cloth. Cloth being more rare.
