  • 63 Dash

    I'm looking for a decent dashboard for my 63 Lark. All of the padding is disintgrated. Does anyone know where I might find one of these?
    Thanks,

    Very rare, hard to find and expensive. A company called "Just Dashes" can make you one for $700-$800. A 64 pad will fit but does not look the same. SASCO sells the 64 pad for $150 or so.

        are there any modifications that need to be done to make the 64 work on the 63 ie glove box/vs vanity. Do I need to buy the main part of the dash to make it work?

            Wow! We threw one out years ago, couldnt even GIVE it away[V]. How
            things have changed. The 64 Dash will fit a 63, you can also use a
            65 or 66 dash too. I would bet you could pick up a used one for less
            then 100 bucks complete. I wish we could have saved those parts. We
            had stripped a complete 64 Lark Challenger 4 door. Thats the one we
            practically gave the straight 6 engine away (I mentioned in your other
            post) from. During the Clinton adminstration my dad lost his job, and
            we were forced to sell our house. We took loads and loads of Stude
            parts to the dump, and metal recycling center, engines, transmissions,
            interior parts, doors, fenders ... a WHOLE straight complete rust free
            front clip from that 64 Challenger. What a shame. We called every guy
            we could think of to GIVE them too .. no one would come get them.[xx(]

                Hey Bob, please contact me if you find a supplier. I'm going to be needing one as well sooner or later.

                    Any Lark dash through 66 should bolt right in. The only difference, besides the color of the switches and perhaps some woodgrain decals, was the glovebox/vanity configuration. It may be necessary to slightly alter the interior of a later glovebox to fit around the heater valve. I put a 66 dash in my 63 and that's all I did.

                    That was ten years ago. Now Studebaker International has a dash cap listed for 1963 that glues over the original and a cover also for the glovebox. Dash cover lists $129.95 and box cover lists $19.95. I don't know if anyone has experience with it or not. It's a firm cover, not padded. Final results may depend on the condition of the existing dash.

                        Thanks guys for the info.. if there were anything left of the padding.. I'd try the cover. Thanks everyone for the information. What a shame that dash got thrown away.

                            The dash on my 65 is nearly perfect, but it's pretty darn firm as it is. I can't imaging that a dash cover would make it much "firmer"
