Don't know why, but yellow 60 rag tops are just too cute to resist. I bought this one this A.M. even though it has some fender rust. (comes with new fenders though)

JDP,

Hang on to those fenders! They would have looked great on several Champ pickups that I had! :D

JDP; I love that Lark! Isn't it amazing how these upolstery guys just can't leave well enough alone, they have to add their "custom touch" even to an otherwise original door panel reproduction![xx(] It does make me wonder though, if they use a hot die or stitch that swoopy fancy street rod design stuff in these door panels? It must be expensive to ruin a otherwise simple original design! If you like it, OH well what do I know, it's just my opinion. I do think that stuff can look cool, if done tastefully on the right radical custom hot rod. Rich. :)

JDP, then I guess you find this modified Lark convertible on eBay to be cute, too (I know I do):

You're right about yellow convertibles. Yours looks like it has a sound body. I always check to see how well the doors hang. I can eliminate a nightmare or two. Your car really looks nice and doesn't seem to present any unusual problems. How's it run?
Come to think of it convertibles of any color are nice. Wish I had one.

I'll let you know when it gets here, but it's supposed to be a great driver, new brakes. It's a V8 overdrive car.
