    Hi Guys, I'm new to posting on this forum. I just bought a 59 Lark 259 3-speed overdrive Hard Top. The car has not run in over 10 years and I could use some advise on start up. I am a SDC member and I have a 47 M-5. I know that the IM is this coming Wednesday and I will be there. The seats are shot and the door panels are bad so I'm looking for new material to replace those items. Thanks for the help. M5Studie

          You can find a huge inventory of old fabric at SMS fabrics in Oregon. I just matched my 53. They can be pricey but you can get an original look.

            I recently acquired a perfect match perforated light blue headliner for the Power Hawk for a very easonable price and delivery was within a week of ordering. I'm probably going to leave it with the new owner to have it installed later this year when I complete a few other details.

              Those actually look like seat covers - are the original covers under them? The fabric used in '59/'60 is probably something that will easy to match - Back in 2007, I got to walk around and look at SASCO - found bottom seat covers for my front and rear seat for my '60 Lark - but that was blind luck...

                Yes that Seat material is definitely aftermarket, and COULD have somewhat good original under it!

                  Thanks for the help guy's! I don't have the car home yet to check and see if there is just a seat cover over the factory material. M5Studie

                    Congratulations!

                    The 59 Lark 2DHTP's are the BEST!

                    StudeRich will be happy to point out the tiny little details that you may not know about the 59's, but thought you knew.

                    Make sure to post in the 59 Lark Registry!
