    2 Door Hardtop 13
    2 Door Sedan 5
    4 Door Sedan 3
    2 Door Station Wagon 8

    Thanks Bill for all your hard work. 59-61 were my favorite Lark years.

    Thanks Bill!

    I now know there are more 59 2DHTP's out there than I EVER thought were left! I'm sure there are at least that number again that are NOT registered, but still on the road, and even more that are sitting in a field, awaiting the repurpose in their life.

    Up to the point of joining this forum, I had only SEEN one other 59 2DHTP, and it was the same color as mine, but was incredibly rusty, and looked like it had been hit by a dump truck on both ends.

    Now for the next part of the puzzle.......
    Which STATE can we break down the 59's to?

    I would LOVE to have a "reunion" for all the 59 2DHTP's left. Set up a tour and just a gathering of them (or as many as we could get) in one place.

    I'll drive mine anywhere, as long as I have the time to go to and from.

    OK Bill, I thought I could supply that information, but alas, I never received the actual location for any of the cars registered. If there was a way to seek out homes other than identifying each individuals' profile and extrapolation from that. At this point I'm simply too busy with other stuff (getting in firewood for the winter for example).
    If anyone is interested to the degree that they wish to do the search then PM me and I'll supply all the "forum handles" so one could perform the profile search.
    Luck,
    Bill

    You have to wonder WHAT that is, above that Brake Pedal?
    It appears that it COULD be the Pedal Lever/Shaft, but overhead suspended Pedals did not happen until 1961, 2 Model Years later!

    Speaker wire coming down from the dash, beneath the aftermarket Temp Gauge. Brake pedal goes through the floor.
