I talked to the owner, Ed--nice guy who had bought the Lark 15 years ago from an SDC member who has since passed on (last name Clemons). Ed says he has the documentation showing it has only 49,000 miles. It sat a number of years and so had some rust issues. Ed says he used Mar-Glass in a few spots, the one being most worrisome in my eyes was on the driver floor near the door. But he says the frame is clean. Trunk needs some repair. Paint job is amateur (note over spray on passenger side rear tire) but presentable. Tires are bias plys from way back. Headliner intact, new carpet. Doors need kick panels. Seats are original and intact. 259 and Flightomatic run out fine. He starts and runs it regularly. Rear springs mebbe need replacing. Price seems kinda high to me, even with fresh paint and bright work, but could be a nice round-towner!

It looks good in the Pics but it may only be skin deep. I don't see anything wrong with the Rear Springs, but there sure IS something going on with the Front ones, you could get nose bleeds driving that thing!

It looks like it has a fresh set the H.D. Option V8 '63 Wagonaire Springs in front, with the Air Conditioning spacers on them!

Either that Rich or the upper bushings were replaced & tightened down before the car was put back on the ground. Sure has the opposite stand of my friends 62 Cruiser! That poor car sits so low in the front you cant hardly make a turn without a tire rub.

When I don't see the nameplates on the front fenders, I figured that work (probably rust repair) was done there.
It is the type of car that would need to be looked at before spending much money.
