I am looking at a 1960 LARK wagon that is rusted out behind the rear wheels and the metal has been cut away. Is there a source for patch panels for this part of these cars? I have found floor pans and frame mounts, just no patch panels! Any Help would be Greatly Appreciated.
Also, will a CHAMP grill fit on a LARK?:D

the grill will fit on the Lark.[:I] The whole front clip is from a Lark. It'll look silly.[:o)] If you need a grill, let me look at gustafson's (local junker, no not my cars...[:I] a dealer). I believe he has a '60. If not I know he has several '62's and their grills would look a sight better on your car than one from a Champ.[8D]

Lotsa Larks!

I believe everything you've asked about is available NOS from SASCO.
I'm pretty sure....

Check with SASCO! They have NOS panels for Lark 2-doors and 4-doors,most can be bought for less than the cost of 'patch panels'for belly button cars. SASCO- 317-462-3124

not golden hawk,not silver hawk,just hawk.

I think the # you gave is Studebaker International, and not SASCO! [:I]

so the rear panel that SASCO lists for 2 & 4 door will work on a wagon? Looks like I only need 6" to 8" from behind the rear wheel to the bumper. SASCO doesn't have a picture of them on their web-site?
Does anyone know if the have a printed catalog? Didn't see one mentioned on their site either??? -Thanks Dan

I'm gettin old.The SASCO # is 574-287-3381 or 800-722-4295. But anyway,last week I know I saw lots of rear 'fenders'in the $45 price range.The 59-60 sheetmetal was easy to find.Available patch panels for brand-x cars start at about$45,but that buys a complete NOS panel for a Studebaker.The area you need for repair could be chopped off,and used as a patch,or maybe they will have the correct panel and you could use the whole thing.My body parts catalogue lists the rear quarters for 1960 wagon, right 1337002 left 1337003

Thanks Nate, I have been watching it. I am a bit worried about the rust on that one(MN). I live around alot of DRY states without the rust/roadsalt issue, so I am going to keep looking. I would rather have a Rust-Free shell of a car then replace every panel.

Actually there are three on the e-bay right now.:D Two are TT cars.[8D] Danarchy, you might be wise bidding on the one, The price seems to have gone a tad high, still the interior is really nice.[8D] With the exterior suffering from so much rust count on having to replace the floors as well.[}:)] This will set you back between 5-600. All in all, the door panels are worth that on this one.[:I] Might be a good idea to look into one of the others offered as parts cars as well...[:I]

Lotsa Larks!

Danarchy,
I havn't been keeping up to date with the forum. Since school let out, I havn't been near a computer too often. How are the auctions coming? Did you get a wagon yet? I live up here in PA so rust is a common thing to deal with. I hope to move to Texas or out West some day where I can have a ranch and rust-free Studes.

Nate- I Didn't buy any of the ones on eBay as I have a line on a few others. I am a fairly patient person, I can wait a month or two for the right car to pop-up! Now that I know some of the differences between the 6 cyl. cars and the V8 cars(Auto & 3spd w/OD) I think I can make a better decision. I am looking for a 1960 (4-door)wagon with a V8 from the factory and 3 speed standard transmission with Overdrive(preferrably with a Dana44 Twin-Traction Rear-end)
If I can't find it all in one car, I know a place that probably has All the pieces! Still on the Hunt!:D
