  • 59 Lark gauge project

    Thought you guys would like to see some pics... My original gauges were trashed, I used some Stewart Warner deluxe series gauges in my original bezel. And utilized the factory radio delete plate. Click image for larger version

      NICE looking Custom Instrument setup! But, you need to order the Studebaker Parking Brake Handle repair kit, Studebaker was selling the "Improved" version '62-'63 Handle Kit back in the '60's for those poor/weak '59-'60 handles.

      UPDATE: 08/16/17 11:36 PM changed items in Maroon.

          my handle broke off a number of years ago and I pulled the handle and shaft from a 55 Commander. I disassembled the cable and sleeve. Then I had to use some JB weld to fill in the extra notches in the shaft that the 55 had that the 59 did not. I sanded and smoothed and it works great! I use it all the time. It is a steel chrome handle and will not break. The nice addition is that the chrome matches the chrome knobs on the dash!
