        In 1961 (only) the heater and air conditioner evaporator were combined.

            Steve, I'm thinking the vendor thought Larks are like Chevy's and this is a Lark II like a Chevy II. Other possibility is that on the Lark "VI" chrome, the "V" got broken so it looks like 2 I's.

                Rich, in my grandad's boneyard there's a '63 Lark 4 door, 6 cylinder, auto trans, and AC. It does not have a shroud, IIRC. Interesting is that is does not have a heater!

                Matthew - If that car also has factory power steering, it has some rare parts. Even the left front engine mount is different on the 1963 power steering, six cylinder cars (This is from memory, as usual. Someone with the parts book can check my memory.).

                    Yes, this is one of the things that is unique in 1961 Larks. I believe that 1961 Larks, not 1961 Hawks, were the only Studebakers with an air conditioner integrated with the heat and ventilation systems. I do not remember ever seeing a 1961 Lark with the correct factory A/C system. Of course, in NY A/C was uncommon in 1961, but I have also looked into 1961 Larks around the country in concours events. It is hard for me to be sure from the eBay picture, but this 1961 Lark appears to have the correct factory A/C system.

                        I'll take a closer look the next time I'm out that way.

                            No deceptive flags to prove I'm patriotic - no biblical BS to impress - just ME and Studebakers - as it should be.
