    it is in fact oasis green - i bought a pint of paint to paint the steel wheels with & it matched the firewall very well! The color is really growing on me!

    60V-18015 - information submitted by owner through email.

    The car is owned by Paul in California. Here is the information he submitted:

    My wife Doris and I bought the car, new in 1960 from the Studebaker dealership in Sacramento, California.

    Since then we have added; p/s, p/b, a/c, luggage rack, wood wrap, gps double din radio with b/u camera, front bumper guards, front/ back seat belts, and an electric fuel pump. Electric outside mirrors.

    Power steering has allowed the tire size to be increased 2 sizes.

    The 259 engine has recently been completely rebuilt, and the transmission and rear end have had maintenance to as new condition.

    The car has less than 115,000 miles.
    It has been painted once( a deferent red).

    It has been a family car, as our three daughters learn how to drive with it.

    As it is now, we drive it as a third car.

    At three times that price it might have been a good deal. If the photo of the odometer shows the actual mileage, it might be a great first car for someone getting into the classic car world...

    I have had 1960 Larks with that seat upholstery. They wear like iron. Based on the seats, alone, it could be 23K or 123K. Based on the rest of the car, I would say that it is probably a low mileage car. The mileage indicated on the odometer means nothing to me on a 58 year old car unless there is ironclad documentation or I purchased the car new.

    The above wagon on eBay has a lot of parts that go with it... https://www.ebay.com/itm/1960-Studeb...xbGKXu&vxp=mtr

    In 2000 I consulted Ted Harbit of Studebaker racing legends about building a great engine. I took the block to the best local machine shop and had it cleaned, checked, and balanced. New freeze plugs and cam bearings were installed. It was kept at standard bore. I bought an engine stand and ordered all brand new parts. I have all the receipts. I've spent thousands. I never got the chance to assemble it all.

    Fast forward to the man I married after all this being diagnosed with cancer and the project being put on hold indefinitely. During a year away from home at a specialty cancer hospital out of state the garage roof leaked right over where the engine and all the parts were stored. The leak got worse and the roof failed. Luckily the gaskets were all in a plastic tote and saved. The engine and many parts have surface rust. I have lots of detailed photos here.

    I do have an extra engine I bought at some point. It's still assembled and also included. You can build whichever you desire. All parts and receipts are included as is the engine stand.

    The 259 V8 was converted to a 4-barrel intake and carb while I owned it. I also purchased an aluminum intake for 2 x 2.

    Several totes of extra parts for '60 Larks including turn signal bezels, tail light lenses, NOS grille, new full dual exhaust, NOS tailgate, extra wagon backup lights, extra wagon folding back seat, after market under dash tissue dispenser, NOS hood ornament and much more.

    The chrome was always excellent on this car. The roof rack and chrome of tailgate trim are now pitted and will need re-chromed. (I regret now I didn't keep waxed.)

    I have extra tune up parts, case of oil filters, regulators, generators, starters to include.

    This is your chance to build a wagon that is rarer than a convertible and have lots of extra parts to sell or use for another project.

    All original wheels and hubcaps though the tires don’t hold air for long.

    60V-50478 - V8 convertible - for sale on Ebay, June 2018

    Climitizer seems to be only Studebaker accessory. Instrument cluster seems to be 1959, not 1960. Restored with V8 and transmission from brand-x, aftermarket radio, mirror, etc.

    60V-11909 - 2 door hardtop - topic of entry in Turning Wheels Co-Operator, Vol 25, No 6, June 1993. p. 31.

    New owner is questioning the presence of the front drums. Normal V8's have 11" front brake drums - this car had 10" front drums. Car is reported to have 87,000 miles.

    60V-29609 - convertible - for sale on Ebay, August 2018.

    automatic tranny, climitizer, radio, lighter, power steering.

    Information from listing: This car has very nice paint with one small chip by the antenna. Very nice interior with no holes. The engine compartment is like new, all gauges work. No rust observed anywhere. Equipped with power steering, there is some play in steering. Since I purchased this car I have done the following things: Heads rebuilt with hardened seats for unleaded gas, new valve guides, rebuilt power steering pump, new larger radiator, thermostat, hoses and heavy duty water pump. New motor for convertible top. Electronic ignition and coil. Synthetic DOT 5 brake fluid. Have all four Studebaker repair and parts manuals. New weather stripping inside doors (passenger side door is a bit harder to close). This car is kept inside and is a nice little driver.

    60V-29311 - for sale on Craigslist, Orange County California, September 2018.

    Ad: 1960 Studebaker Lark VIII 4-door wagon. This is a fantastic project for someone who wants a great starting point on a nostalgic, very rare wagon. All original California wagon, original engine and trans. Original black plate car with little to no rust. It has the 289 V8 with auto trans. The engine will turn over and run, but does need to be towed to new home. The body is very straight and in good shape. Just needs sanding love and is ready for paint. Needs complete interior. All glass and chrome is there.

    60S-63415 - 4 door sedan - for sale on Ebay, September 2018.

    Climitizer, push button radio, automatic transmission, oil bath air cleaner, bumper guards, padded dash. Aftermarket AC would make a big hill in summer quite a challenge...

    Information from ad: Up for bid is a 1960 Studebaker Lark Vl barn find. Looks like this car has been sitting inside all its life. This car is a project car. The body is very solid. Does have normal rust in the floors and some small amount of rust in the rockers. The car has been sitying since 2001. I did get the car running but it has no brakes so I did not drive it. The car is very complete. All the trim is on it. All four hub caps. The car is very solid arond the window with no rust . All the glass is good with no cracks. I dont think the car is missing anything. Very complete. It is a factory ac car. The body is in great shape with perfect pitina. The interior is all there but has rips in the seat and dash. Still has the spare tire and jack in the trunk. I do have a clear title.

    As previously stated, that is an aftermarket A/C unit, not a 1960 Lark unit. I owned a 1960 Lark with A/C AND a V8.
