    Rough as a badger's... Too funny! Reminds me of my pickup Ed or the two poor little '63 Lark Sedans I have.

    Welcome to the forum, Steven,
    Yes, the S indicates you should have a 6 cylinder engine. I hope for you they made the necessary modifications to brakes and suspension when they did the swap. I also hope this will be of no inconvenience in getting the car to your name.
    Nice day to all.

    Since your Lark have the steeringwheel on the left side it couldn't been made for the japan market when it was new, unless it was for postman Pat...

    Just posted this in my other thread so thought I would copy / paste it here too...

    After a little time with my paperwork (and trying to work out Japanese) it seems my car was exported to Japan in 1990 and then to England in late 2016. The Lark was owned in Japan by the Chuo Jidosha Co LTD.

    Another little snippet is the engine. It was pointed out that my engine has 4 bolt valve covers and oil filler pipe which indicates it being a 62 or older. This makes sense now as my car has a VIN beginning with S63 which I believe would make mine originally a 170ci six?

    He has the MO. I did have a Farina MG Magnette which is very similar to the Oxford, Cambridge etc. Great cars for the everyday trundle.

They range from looking fairly rough to rough as a badgers a*se but they run like Swiss watches and drive so well you could use any of them every day. They are all totally original bodily and that's how he likes them. Horses for courses as they say.

    There's a site called "Racing Studebakers" & there you'll find loads of struff to keep you from sleeping early at nights...
    (& I'm surprised that no other English Studebaker owner has written here so far.)

    I use this comment a lot at car shows where some exhibitors tel me about how much their car is worth and how prices are rising etc etc.
    It doesn't matter if your car is worth £500,000 or 500 quid. If you enjoy it and it puts a big smile on your face, that's priceless.

    Thank you Studeclunker. I'll definitely get their catalogue as, sad as it sounds, I enjoy looking through old car parts books. Especially the chromed accessories such as the Studebaker traffic light window that I missed on ebay. Modern cars are so boring in comparison to these gorgeous classics.

    In all seriousness, welcome to the forum! I know that with a good attitude and a desire to learn (which it seems you have) you'll do just fine in the Stude world. I myself just purchased my first car, a 1962 GT Hawk, a little over a year ago. I love every single angle and idiosyncrasy of her! Take a gander for yourself!
    That is a gorgeous GT You must be very proud of her and rightly so!!
    I've been looking around the members cars pictures thread. Not only are the cars stunning but the talent and skills the owners have is amazing.
    Well, I could sit here all day and read through the various sections but work beckons. When I decided to go self employed I thought my working life would be a little easier........
    Have a good day guys,
    Steve.
