I OWN A 1960 LARK. THE BODY IS BEIGE AND I AM GOING TO PAINT THE NEW WHEELS. THE ORIGINAL ONES ARE SEVERAL SHADES DARKEN THAN THE BODY. IS THIS CORRECT? WHERE CAN I PURCHASE A COLOR CHIP FOR THE BODY COLOR. ALSO, I AM SEARCHING FOR A LARK DEALERSHIP BANNER THAT IS GOLD WITH BLACK LETTERS. DOES ANYONE KNOW OF A BOOK THAT INDICATES ALL THE STUDEBAKER DEALERS WITH THE ADDRESSES? THANK YOU.

Ray,

If, in fact, the wheels were an off-white, a readily available color at your FLAPS is a Ford color, Wimbleton white. Hope this helps. :)

Was Wimbleton White also a body color for a 62GT?

Ray, first I think you should know that when you type in all capital letters, it is considered shouting when on the internet. I'm not sure about the color on the wheels. I might be wrong, but I didn't think the wheels were painted white regardless of body color until 1963. The color on the wheels may be closer to the original color because the sun would be less likely to fade out the colors.

Paint chips will also change over time and in most cases are not an actual depiction of the color. Even if it was, during the assembly process, colors can end up in different shades of the same colors. In paint terms, this is called a variance. Even now, certain colors may have up to 20 different variances of the same color. The temperature, humidity, pressure, etc., can all have an impact on the color.

Check out http://www.tcpglobal.com/autocolorlibrary/ for the paint chips on the 1960 models. The color may not be exact, but the paint code is. Most paint companies can make a gallon or two based on the paint code, even a base coat / clearcoat if needed.

I wouldn't know about the banners. These do show up on Ebay, and the prices vary accordingly. I've heard that the Museum has the names and addresses for the dealers, but I'm not sure of the cost. If you check the seach feature in the 'General' talk area, there are a few threads dedicated towards dealership names and addresses. While far from complete, many are listed.

Good luck and welcome!

I am pretty sure that in 1960 the wheels were painted body color. the wheels in 62 were Wimbledon white.

In 61 wheels were silver.

And, yes Wimbledon white is a dead ringer for Studebaker's Ermine white used on 62 GTs

Wheel colors were addressed in TW, but I don't know what issue.

I believe Leonard is correct...wheels were (lower) body color through 1960, then silver in '61, then that off white color 62-66.

Right, except 58 wheels were Ermine (Wimbledon) white.

Studebaker like to make things confusing! [:p]

I thought that up until 1963, Studebaker painted the outside of the wheels whatever the body color was and that 1963 till their demise was the Ermine/Off white color ?

No, my family owned a new 58 Hawk and the rims were white, and also a 61 Lark and the rims were silver. I painted both black soon after we bought them. I am positive that 62 Lark rims were white also.

Another paint to consider is Rustoleum Parchment White..I was given 4 Avanti rims from another owner. I sandblasted them, epoxy primed them then, sprayed them with the Rustoleum. They look sharp. Allow extra time for the Rustoleum to dry.

So what is the wheel colors for '64? I thought they were a shade of white also but different than '63?

64 wheels are also Ermine (Wimbledon) white.

64 wheels are a much brighter hite, and I think less attractive white then the antique white earlier wheels.

The '64 cars I have owned had the '63 Off White/Beige on the U.S. ones and the whiter white as JDP mentions on the late '64 Canadian Imports as well as the '65 & '66's.

It has been my experience that the Ford or is it Chrysler Wimbleton White is not beige enough to match '62 to early '64 original wheels. And we have taken many points off the SDC judged cars for "white" wheels. Ermine White IS White, wheel color is Almond/Beige.

Whites are very tricky, how many '64's have you seen that were actually Astra White? They are always painted Ermine (yellow off-white) OR most commonly GM White which is stark White (blue/white). It is supposed to be Gray/White which is a match to a '64 VW.

Who in this world decided that capital letters means your shouting at someone. Does anyone know where this originated? It does'nt make sense to me. Look above on this website---FAQ and LOGOUT are both shouted at you as well as PAINT. I don't know why they shouted these words. (don't get me wrong--I have heard this before as well--I just can't imagine where it came from) Dan

For some strange reason the prescribed color for wheels on my '53 solid color Chippewa Green Starliner is Tahoe Green (dark green). Even so, I couldn't find any trace of Tahoe on my wheels, just Chippewa.

I used Antique White from Sherwin-Willams and found it to be a very close match.

I was just going by the wheels on my 64 Daytona convertible. The car has never been repainted and the wheels don't appear to have been repainted either.
