This looks nice from 20 feet and I bet it looks good close up. Wish there were more pictures. Lots of bidders anyway.

Note that it started life as a six cylinder convertible.

The owner's name is Ed. He semi-frequently posts listings on the Swap Page. He's listed it there from time to time. On July 1 he posted this listing:

For all you hot rodders, I am putting my Lark back to an all Studebaker Lark and I have for sale a 350 Chev eng. trans and 9in. Ford rear. Engine was rebuilt about a year ago, holds 60 lbs. oil pressure on the road. It's still in the car and you can hear it and drive it. Runs good. Driveshaft and floor shift included. $2000.00.

Now he's just listed the whole car for sale.

If anyone wants it, his direct e-mail and phone # are on the Swap Page, ad #5514, dated July 1.

Very nice looking car, the 6 Cyl. frame should be the same as a V-8, no prob.

OH! It's got a belly button motor, never mind! :D

Rich, I know we've been through this many, many times, but aren't the 1959 and up Lark frames when they started to have thinner gauge steel on 6 cylinder models than V/8 models? They are different, correct? I should know this, but were all Lark and Lark-type convertible X frames made with the V/8 gauge steel? I thought they weren't.
