    Does anyone recognize this moulding?
    One piece has spear on one end, closed square on the other and 56" long.
    One piece has spear on one end, closed square on the other and 38" long.
    One piece has closed squares on both ends and 45" long.

    Thinking it might be '39 Champion hood, rear quarter & door

    No part numbers on the back of them?
    Might they be '59 or '60 Lark?

      Pretty sure thay cannot be ‘39 Studebaker as the pictured molding has a concave profile. All the moldings on my ‘39 are convex.

        No numbers found but you might be on to something with Lark since they came with some prewar stuff I bought and recall him telling me that most of his parts were postwar. Thanks for your input.

          Thanks Bob. I thought the '39 moulding "might" be convex but getting a detailed shot off google images is difficult since most car images are taken at some distance. I'm going to explore the Lark possibility that rockne10 suggested.

            I looked at '59-'60 Lark and although the concave profile looks the same I did not see any Spears on the ends. I did see however that fender & door moulding on '59-'60 Hawks have the same profile and Spears facing FWD & AFT so I think that's what I have. The 45" piece with closed square ends might be rear quarter.

            In reference to my original post, can any Hawk owners confirm this moulding is '59-'60 Hawk?

              Definitely not a pre-war moulding.
