Hope it's not a fresh coat of red over rust (see pix)!

That car is begging to be upgraded to a healthy R2 package, or perhaps the twin turbo setup I have sitting in my garage. A 5 speed trans would then be a nice touch as well. On top of all that, it just happens to be almost my favorite Lark. The only thing missing is the 64 front clip… which I also have sitting in my garage.
Hmmmmmmm.. something is brewing in my brain.

Go for it. I put a late model front clip on my '63 in the 90's and it continues to get puzzled looks. What year it that? ('62 tail lights throw many off) They should have been made that way.

Doug, I don't find too many to see the beauty of that combo. I just love the 63 2 door sedan lines and the round tail lights with the "square" front end is the perfect combination.

Nice looking car. It just needs a drive train.

Nope, not a top of the line Custom, it's only a Regal.

Long time Studebaker owners must have really been confused by that. Regal's were always near to, or THE best and the years that Customs were made, they were the BOTTOM! :ohmy: That could explain their very poor sales numbers, that and the fact that the External differences were slight and completely unnoticeable from the Front. :ohmy:

The '62 Regals in Sedans & Wagons also made a poor showing, not nearly as good as the '59-'61 Regals that you could see coming easily. :(

I'm not ready for that project yet. Still too many other distractions. Though, I still long for that 63 2dr with a 64 front clip. Maybe someday.

It has the look of a nice original car, as well as can be told from the pictures...especially the trunk. Not restored or even detailed but just good and solid. The interior looks really nice too....and the engine nice and dry but not detailed or dolled up.
