    60s 4dr sedan.60s53488. Just bought. First ride 11-7-2014. Needs work, but it still runs and drives.

    A bit of progress. Would like to repaint black, but I don't think I can get the body that straight. Still pondering.....

    This '60 six-cylinder convertible sold at this auction last summer, and last I heard, it was currently for sale in Saskatoon: http://forum.studebakerdriversclub.c...ollege+auction

    I actually saw this car in 1980. As I recall, it was a later car, painted Pacific Blue, a 1960 spring color.

    60V-32335 / 60V-J6, for sale online on Autotrader.

    Hardtop with aftermarket AC, climitizer, radio, regal trim. Looks nicely restored - but some things are not 100% accurate.

    Studebaker changed from 4 bolt to 2 bolt valve covers mid-year in 1960. They're probably correct.

    60S-66786 6cyl Convertible converted to a V8 car in 1986 and owned by me until last fall (2014) when it was sold to it's new owner, Dennis O'Brien of So Cal. South Bend Built in July of 1960, Jonquil Yellow with black vinyl interior.
    No deceptive flags to prove I'm patriotic - no biblical BS to impress - just ME and Studebakers - as it should be.

    No there is not. Sometimes you can take a good thing TOO far you know.
    Pretty soon you will have 1000 Registry's with THREE Cars each!
    How about one for only Oasis Green '60 Lark Deluxe Wagons with a P/B Radio, Climitizer and a Cigar Lighter?

    I think '59 & '60 Larks would have been good until there are over a Hundred or so, and it breaks into separate '59 and '60 Registries. Or just '60's like it is, whatever.

    Appears to only have climitizer and twin-traction emblem, so possibly still equipped with such.

    Man they sure blew it on every single Color on this Lark 6 Convert!

    Not even the Engine is correct, and any Local Parts Store would have Aluminum Silver Engine Enamel, how hard is that?
    A Penguin Interior, and way too bright Yellow Paint. If it is not a Modified, there is no reason not to save a bit of Value and originality.

    Yep, that's the one I referenced in Post #46 above. It was up for sale on Kijiji in Saskatoon in the fall of 2013.

    Patrick,

    Daunting undertaking, trying to quantify the unloved early Lark that were produced in such large numbers, but are seldom seen today. As the less then stylish work horse (with the non-included wagon) most left the scene by 1980. With little value today and with few people maintaining and fewer restoring them, they have unfortunately, all but left the collectable car scene. Doubters only need to focus on 1959-1962 Larks at large Studebaker gatherings and compare their numbers to the "more collectable" offerings. Many early Larks still in existence today sit unattended in fields an barns, with little chance of ever seeing the road again. Periodically word filters down through the franks of rather large collections of these "saved" cars being scraped as the cars and their owners have aged. So while I think that your job of compiling accurate numbers is near impossible maybe your thread can bring some love to the unloved.-Bill

    '60 Lark: 60V F4 Deluxe V8 2-door sedan, serial 60V-31961. Red/Red interior, 304 R2+ engine (supercharged), overdrive, 4.27 Twin Traction. Delivered new in California, purchased out of Modesto, CA in 2005. I got it in memory of my dad, who bought '60 Lark 60V-40405 2-door sedan new--Colonial Red/Red interior, 259/PowerKit/3.73. Unfortunately, 60V-40405 is long gone (dad traded it on a '61 Hawk). I was with him at our local Studebaker dealer when he ordered the '60. 'Loved that car.

    I agree 100% with that. It takes almost zero extra effort to make things the correct color. They probably did not even think about it.

    Perry, the right rear axle ratio made quite a difference, didn't it?

    It's the number plate on the right side of the firewall next to the heater. I thought that was the body plate. With the letter in it, I'm guessing not.
