  1. Why fender weights on front of Lark convertibles.

    Can anyone explain the reason for the massive weights bolted down low under the front fenders of Lark convertibles. I've seen them on all year models from 1960 thru 1963 at least. It seems a faulty design to add 60 to 80 lbs of dead weight onto a vehicle that's is supposedly designed to be an economical vehicle.
    If their presence is of engineering design, then why are they only on convertibles?
