Tom,
That would be one of the OTHER Evans from the Sask chapter, Evan Severson. The TW binders are still available, and we will have them at the Zone Meet in Penticton in September, or we can always ship them to you. Shipping is reasonable, as Evan Severson can just step into Montana from where he lives and ship them to you. Thanks, Evan

It is a Canadian assembled car, sold new in Medicine Hat, Alberta. In fact, the quart of oil that the dealer gave the owner in 1961 is still full and in the trunk! Evan

Boy, that's a nice looking Lark. From here it even looks new.
Best of luck with it. You have what I don't have on my '59 Lark. An oil filter. How's it run?
You must be a nice guy with the name Evan. My younger son's name is Evan and he has his eyes on my Lark.

I like 1961 Larks and have owned several. Is your car a Deluxe with optional dual headlights or is it a Regal that is missing its C-pillar emblems?

I looked at your additional pictures. The interior appears to be a Deluxe. Were the dual headlights ordered as an option on this car or is that something that was changed later? The build sheet would show which way it was assembled. What is the information on the body tag?

Nice Autumn Haze Lark Evan, it even has the correct color wheels! [^]
I like the '59 Hubcaps it has, way better than those extra deep funny looking '61 type.
Looks like a deluxe with the optional dual headlights, because it does not appear to have the "C" pillar emblem, drip rail mouldings, grille surround moulding and pleated door panels etc. [^]

Wow that's a nice car. I am especially partial to '61s and I like Autumn Haze (my first Studebaker and first new car was a '61 Cruiser in Autumn Haze). It looks really authentic except for the right hand antenna. Serious congratulations.

Those are the correct hubcaps, as it is a Hamilton car. I know the car quite well. The 'secret' serial number is clearly visible on the outer flange of the frame. If you can make it to Pentiction for the Pacific CanAm, Evan will be there with it.

Being the resident Lark fanatic, I agree- what a beauty! I'm having a hard time getting an accurate feel for the color as your pics seem to show 3 different colors- first 5 are grey, then 3 are beige, then one white...

Which is more accurate?

Bob, the gray color shots are very true. Actually, the one shot in this thread is spot on. It was a color peculiar to '61. Autumn Haze. As the tale goes, the color was concocted by stirring together left over paint bits from the paint mixing room. Someone commented they liked the result and it was then formally duplicated and added to the 61 lineup of colors![|)] <-Autumn Haze

Bob,

In my youth I spent 4 summers painting dormitory rooms at the University of Virginia. We had 4 colors (I remember one of the codes as "18-2") that we slathered on. A couple of my crew mates had worked one summer painting the interior of the county school buildings.

They claimed the industrial brown was created in just such a matter, all the left over paint was mixed together to create the color. It was affectionally known as "monkey sh*# brown".

Thanks, Biggs, now I know it- there was a semi-rough but driving Lark at York this year that color...

When we were kids, we did demo derbies; and of course, you can't smash up a car that hasn't been freshly painted...[:o)] So we'd raid the stock room for paint left over from various jobs to combine to come up with a gallon... we liked to see what kind of color we could come up with by combining paints. We found that there always came a point after which no matter what you added the color was always the same; and we called that color "Battleship Gray"... and this car reminded me of that...

No disrespect intended to the car- in fact, that color looks cool on there!

Just looked a little lame sprayed all over the tires, trim, and seats of some doomed 66 Chrysler or the like......;)

The tale may be right. I had an Autumn Haze '61 convertible with original (faded) paint. I peeled off an old AAA decal and found bright new paint. I took a NOS piece of '53 interior trim in Loma Gray and compared it to the virgin Autumn Haze- dead on!.

Bob, the gray color shots are very true. Actually, the one shot in this thread is spot on. It was a color peculiar to '61. Autumn Haze. As the tale goes, the color was concocted by stirring together left over paint bits from the paint mixing room.

Thanks for the great comments. I know its only a plain jane 4 door sedan, but I love it. The wife loves it too- and she thought that she didn't like the color at first, but it's growing on her for sure. I will be driving it out to the Zone Meet in Penticton in September. I will also have it at the Prairie Overdrive here in Saskatchewan in August. Thanks everyone!
