:yeahright: Note the seller's description of the automobile market in the first paragraph describing the car:

http://www.ebay.com/itm/Studebaker-Lark-Four-Door-/161643073783?forcerrptr=true&hash=item25a2ad90f7&item=161643073783

Rather inviting, eh? :QQ: BP

This one needs a lot more help than a quick look at the fairly good looking Pics would indicate.

It could be affordably saved if the price were half of asking.

I think that is the first Cruiser I have ever seen in Flamingo paint. It is also about the least optioned Cruiser I have ever seen. Really nice car, though. Performability for the Jet Set! <G>

Looks a lot like the one we purchased down in Centre, Alabama and drove back to Boston several years ago...'cept that one was an overhead six!

Other than 289 automatic setup, that is! <G>

I posted a photo of a well equipped one here a few years ago: http://forum.studebakerdriversclub.com/showthread.php?14124-61-Lark-heads-up&highlight=flamingo

That's a nice one, too! I hope it survived.

The rust in the doors tells me you will find a lot more of it when seeng it in person.

I wonder what 'people flicked to the car in small drives' even means. No idea. Then the big 3 "found" cars that knocked it right on its ass. Also, they are pricing the car 'agressively'. I can see that by the price being double. But what ticks me off along with all that is claiming only "surface rust" when you can clearly see holes in the driver's door in the first picture; and all this from somebody claiming to be a business. He has a nice group of cars listed. I wonder how he's got them given his poor literacy.

Careful Buddy, don't become a StudeRich!

Telling the obvious, honest TRUTH here is frowned upon! :D

Was that some odd conversion? 1961 Cruisers came standard with a 259 V8 and the 289 V8 was optional.

Who gives a crap? i don't give a damn what a couple trolls think. Maybe my delivery is a little too direct for some, but nobody can question my love for Studebakers... and good Studebaker people. I'll just keep on being happy regardless :)

The '61 Cruiser I owned was just as sparsely optioned as this one is; bench seat, no radio, PS or PB, although it was an automatic with the standard 259 cubic inch engine. Of course there is no telling for sure if this one is a 289 until he states the engine number.
