You're right. That is definitely not a convertable hair do. I wonder if the car is registered as a Lark or Hawk?

Hmm... I had to think about it awhile, but ultimately I prefer the cute Lark nose. Was that a car that was actually built?

Very unusual car I think I could learn to like it , but I draw the line on the girl with the beehive or what ever the hairdo is called :D

Is that a creation from the Belgian assembly plant?

It sort of reminds me of an MG Magnette. There were a couple of convertibles made that don't look exactly like this Studebaker, but have some similar traits.

Gotta say, I don't care for it. The low, streamlined front doesn't mix with the boxier rear. Each end belongs with its own front.

And what's wrong with the hairdo guys? She always has honey with her.

2 girls, out running around town misbeehiving.
That nose does not work on that car - at all. Nice try, but no. That's a Larkenstein. And she'd be the bride.

Judging by the license plate (and extra lights) it's clearly not in North America.

Not even close, those fenders have been seriously modified to alter the height from a low Hawk fender to a higher Lark one, and much more to fit it all together, like shorten the hood.

The wheel openings and lower and rear parts of the fenders are all Lark with Hawk fenders grafted on top, major surgery there! [:0]

Looks to me like the grille is laid back a bit further at the top too.

Nice job of integrating that front end on the Lark body. I don't know if I like it. I love the standard Lark front end.
As far as the girl's hair goes, that was the style of the '50s & early '60s.

Someone should grab the ball and run with it. I like to see this combination at the next international meet in the eastern U.S.
