I just bought a very solid lark today. I am going to fix it up for my daughter so she can show it. as I have a few old cars and was looking for a cute fifties car to do a light restore on. the engine runs and we drove it home but it has a couple of dead holes. Need info on the car. where to buy parts ect. want to keep the flat six in it. just want it run on all 6. [8D]

if it's a six, you could try Cathcart's, they are good with the Champion engines.

Welcome to the Forum!

If you're going to "fix it up for my daughter so she can show it" you need to make a bee line to membership in SDC. You've got a vehicle that's easy to get parts and information if you take advantage of the huge resource offered.

We can help a great deal through this Forum but, there's no way we can better show what's available than TURNING WHEELS, the monthly publication of SDC.

Only $19.95. Join here:

I think you'll find that once you get your daughter into this Lark, you're going to feel left out. Better get ready to buy something for yourself. A 54 Commander Coupe for example? It just happens to be my favorite. Can you tell? See below.
