    What a great find. I think mine may have been that color [?] I am pleased that another lark has found a good nesting spot.

      Dick--

      Surely your 62 wasn't a Hamilton car, having been sold in California...but that colo(u)r looks very like the elusive, supposedly Canada-only P6218 Metallic Blue my 62 originally wore (and which is still visible on the firewall). Is the paint on yours its original coat?

      As the ad said, Love That Lark!

        SN is 62V5497, so not a Hamilton car. It has been repainted once, but appears to be in the original color (or close to it). The door jams, floors, etc. were not repainted.

          FWIW, SASCO also has piles of NOS '62 Lark door panels.

          Not a lot of '63 stuff, however. (Ask me how I know.)

          One good thing about Larks and Sedans. There's SO much that can still be bought new. [^]

            Thanks for the tips, Matt. My body guy says "piece of cake" to take that dent out of the left corner of the front panel, so I'll probably pass on that. I did buy a new one ($50 I think) for a '62 wagon I had.

            On the door panels, will they go through the stack and find the right color and model?

              I really don't know, but a call to Dennis wouldn't hurt. I know I spent a couple of hours last year looking for a complete set of '63 two door panels, to no avail. I lost count of the '62 two door panels tho! [xx(]

                The 62 Lark convertible that I bought in the 80s had the same door panels, and I bought new ones from SASCO, but that was decades ago. I also painted the car a similar color as yours.

                  Here is a photo from the Straustown Lions Club meet year before last. Car is one of the Keystone Chapter members. I think it is mostly original - down to the seat covers.

                      Regarding the 62 door panels. My brother picked some up for me at SASCO . They are not my color, but will dye just fine. If I remember the front and rear set was about $85.00.
