    1960 Lark - 60SW4

    Here is the only Studebaker I currently own.

    The person I purchased the car from only owned it for a few year and I knew it from the owner before. That owner purchased the car back in the early '80 and it had only 30k miles on it. The original owner also had an early 2R5 with less than 30K miles on it. When the person who bought the black car returned two weeks later the truck had already been sold...

    The motor was burning oil at @ 40k. Rebuilder found number one piston did not have all the compression rings and those that were there were in multiple pieces.

    It was sold new in La Grange, Texas, in December of 1959. It still has the original window sticker and the licence receit. Off the top of my head I want to say total sticker price was $2253.

    In June of 2005, the car was driven from the state where it had lived its entire life to a new home in Pennsylvania. This past summer it finally turned 50k miles.

    POs installed the grill surround and chrome headlight rings. Only thing done to the interior is carpet and an NOS red and black steering wheel. Someone also put a radio in as well, but drilled a hole in the cowl for the antenna (that will be fixed eventually).

    The little six works pretty hard on the hills in Eastern Pennsylvania, but it sure likes to run.

    1960 Lark VI - finally turned 50k in August of 2006

    Car has found itself to back west again - currently the first vehicle to arrive in Lexington, Kentucky, where my wife and I are relocated (very slowly)...

    Update as of Nov. 2016. The Lark is living comfortably in a new home in the Frankfort area of Kentucky. On a drive one afternoon late this summer, I drove through a small place between Versailles KY and Lexington KY. There are about five houses and this little church but the community name is what stands out - fitting considering both the Lark and I are originally from the Lone Star state...

    Thanks for the update. Wonderful car. I had a 63 with a 6 and an automatic. That car would take on anything. Great little driver. I think the 6s are under rated!
