My wife was watching America's Next Top Model and the girls were drove in in three different convertibles and I believe one of them was a 1959 Lark.

1963 Cruiser, 2-1963 Wagonaire, 1952 Champion. Based Willamette
Valley Oregon.
1952 Ford F-1, 1977 Lincoln Continental (all works in progress)

I did not see it, but make that a '60 Lark, as there were no '59 Convertibles [:0]

Of course, like mine, the one you saw may have been built in 1959. Still a 1960 model year only convertible for that body style, though '61's look very close to the average eye. I wish I had seen that show. For me the '59-60's ARE the top models! The 1959 Larks had subtle trim and wiring harness differences from the 1960 Larks, but had the same body parts. They also added a 4 door wagon that year that didn't exist in '59.
I have original vintage year of manufacture Ohio plates on mine (1959) further confusing things for some people. Good conversation topic and leads them to my production order and window sticker at a meet. In Ohio the 1960 plates are similar to the DUI plates given convicted drunk drivers for work priviledges, so I was very happy to be granted the "Year of Manufacture" plate registration for my historical plates. :D

If I'm not mistaken, Studerich actually worked for the dealer on my license plate frame. Pretty Cool history. If he had a Pasadena dealer frame, I'd trade him. ;)

At Wink's I also threw on my original 1959 Arizona license plate where it was first licensed in late fall of '59.
