Found this tastefully rodded Lark hardtop in the Car Craft "Street Machines" section:

I know not everyone likes modified Studes, but you've got to admire how smooth this one is. [8D]

Very nicely done indeed [:p]. It's like a Corvette with a nice looking body [8D]. I like how he kept the Corvette wheels also.

I have to admit that I am one of those guys that doesn't like modified cars, especially if the car still has the potential to be restored stock:( However, this is probably one of the best looking modified cars I have seen. Nice job!:D

For me it's a tossup.
A greatly improved Corvett versus a downgraded Stude.

I have to agree here.;) Very nice execution. I like that he held to the Regal door panel design and resisted the "everybody's-gotta-have-'em" embossed door panels that are all-pervasive in the "Custom" car arena these days.
My only question is: how hard would it be to have a hot Stude engine in place of the Corvette motor? Other'n that, I have no qualms with how it's done.:D

heh - Dick - makes me wanna go save that little Salmon-colored hardtop that was sitting where you got that Biz coupe.[:p]

It looks like there was a lot of planning done prior to doing. I like it [:p]

I also don't really like modified Studes, but this one really looks nice. I wouldn't own it, but I admire the work done on it.
I'd rather he kept it stock, but those are my 2 cents.

I'm more partial to the 62-63 Larks (I know, everyone thinks the '59-60 models are "cuter"), but this one does really look smooth.

I'm not a big fan of non-stude powered cars, but the engineering that went into that is pretty cool. Its also sleak looking too from the suddle two-tone grey to the stock exterior.
