Thanks everybody as soon as I hear from the owner I will post if its available and more on its condition. Slavich Brothers was the Studebaker Dealer in Fresno. According to the plate starting with an E it was first registered here in California Fresno County to be exact from what I've been told.

My guess is the squirrels are using the battery hold-down to crack all those nuts! They look like they are pretty busy.

Glad to see they haven't wrecked the dash cover - many '63 owners would love to get thier hands on it...

Yeah, that dash cover looks pretty good for a '63! I SWEAR this same car was on ebay or maybe Craigs list last year. I remember noting that it was up your way, Anne, but being a 6 (and being yet another dead Studebaker), I tried (and obviously succeeded) to forget about it.:(

To summarize what we know, up to now (5 O-Clock NBC News style!):

This is a 1963 Stude. Lark 6 Regal 2dr. sedan (63S-F4) with OHV 170 engine, Flight-O-Matic Trans, Green Mist with standard Green cloth & vinyl interior, Climatizer and Automatic may be the only options. No Clock, Radio, bumper guards, power steering, power brakes, air conditioning or tinted glass. Pretty much standard for a lower level 2dr. Sedan especially a 6.

Only downside would be if you repaired and drove it, the lightweight aluminum case type AS Transmission would not be the best long term low cost driver, because of strength, dependability and repair cost issues. :(

Has fair dash, very nice steering wheel, body looks quite straight except decklid, surface rust on the front clip only. :)

This would restore and become a Super Lark R1 or R2 clone very nicely, GOOD find Anne![^] Now to find out if it's for sale! [}:)]:D[:p]

Bob,

I've never owned a T-35 tranny IN A STUDE. But I've owned 4 Rambler Classics with a 232cu.in. 6 in them and all had the T-35 for a gearbox. They all got a workout while I owned them and I never had a problem.

Anne,
This car has been for sale on craigslist previously. I think they were only asking 300 or 400 for it if I remember right. I just did not have the room nor the time to deal with it. I think the owners name is Hiedi. Good luck on finding it a new home.

Bob; it isn't that it is BAD, it's just that, when you know about all the Stude. options and possibilities, you go for the BEST! The '56-'62 Lark 6's had the the Cast Iron case Flight-O-Matic, the same as a V-8 but with the low gear start, IF I were going to own and drive a 6 cyl. I would opt for the stronger of the two!

The other reason is that the cast Iron case units are very similar to the Ford-O-Matics making parts easier to find, than for the limited usage Rambler 6 transmission.
