  • My "Forever" Project Updated*

    Hello,

    Well it seems that winter might be close to being over (as far as the snow is concerned). I have gone back to working on my 1961 Lark and have a few new pictures to share. Since that last time I posted pictures of the vehicle this is what has been done:

    Installation of:

    Windshield washer kit (black bottle type)
    Carpet
    Interior reupolstered (door panels, seat, headliner, etc.)
    Rear speaker kit
    Tissue box (1962 version) (looking for 1961 version)
    Backup light kit
    Factory correct tail light lenses (driver quality pair and show pair)
    Glove box light kit
    Safety rear door lock kit (child locks)
    Reel type antenna

    I believe that is the bulk of it. As you can see most of it is just small parts. But I am trying to find as many of the 1961 factory options for this rig as possible.

    Most of the big time mechanical restoration will happen when it gets warmer out and I will be sure to keep you guys posted.

    I wished my interior was as nice as yours. You are well on your way to very nice Lark. Thanks for posting the pictures.

        Pretty car. I even like the "patina" on the hood. I'd be tempted NOT to paint it. Original is cool! []

            Do all '61 trunk lids have that raised center section? I've never noticed that before.[:I]

                I believe all of the 1961 lark models do.

                    Nice car. So many people put down 61 Larks, but I still like them even if the beltline molding doesn't follow the fender contour![:0]
