Its a 1959 studebaker lark I bought for 300 bucks. Put new floors and moved the rearend of 6inches. Put a 9in in it along with moving the tubed axle up 3 1/2 inches and moving the motor back about halfway into the firewall. With a nice set of megnesium spindle mounts up front. Im just trying to find new or good quarters and doors to put on it and i am getting a glass front end. I know some of you studebaker guys will not like it but it will be a 60s drag car with all the correct parts. I am 22 so money is a big factor. Thanks for any help you guys can give me with parts. Pictures i do not have any at the moment.

I'm almost 20 and understand the $$$ issue. That sounds like one really cool ride. [8D]

Is this car a 2 door? New rear fenders for a 2 door may be spendy if available but new 4 door rear fenders are cheap & available. New doors for a 2 door may also be spendy if available. There may be persons on here with good used rear fenders and doors for a 2 or 4 door Lark. I think many people here will find your project gasser very interesting and may want progress reports. Good luck. :)

Don't go away! If SI doesn't have what you need we can find it for you; the parts aren't all that rare or expensive (just one of the beauties of Studes:)). Also, your project is welcome- we love stock, modified, race, or any combination thereof... as long as it's another Stude saved[^]

Of course, this service is not free- the cost is several pictures:D

Any vendor, or anyone else trying to help you with good used parts, will want to know if you have a two door sedan or a two door hardtop.

Is the bottom half of a 2 door sedan door the same as a 2 door hardtop door? I thought the window frame on a sedan door would unbolt and therefor could be converted to a hardtop door.

Not for 1959-1962. The upper door frame is part of the door, not an added assembly like on 1963-1966 sedans.

I understand now, as I've disassembled doors from a 1963 but never dealt with the earlier type. Thanks guys.
