  • Yellow Lark Convertible

    My 15 year old daughter has decided that she would in fact like a Lark Convertible. She can't drive in Louisiana until she is 16, so we have some time to find one. I have looked at some and communicated with some folks that have them for sale. At first she wasn't too thrilled about the idea of a Lark... but seems to have completely turned around in her thinking. (I'm sure I didn't have anything to do with that!)

    Anyway, she wants one with a yellow exterior, black top and black interior. If anybody has a photograph of such a Lark Convertible I would appreciate them e-mailing me so she can put it in her room and dream!!

    Suggested she drive my Champ pickup, but that doesn't seem to excite her at all!![}]

    Here is a great one. I can't remember who owns it but it was at the Atlantic Zone Meet in Martinsburg, WVA. Maybe someone can identify it.

            Very nice looking Lark convert!
            I do not want to know WHAT that ugly looking wan-a-be station wagon next to it is![xx(] That's allmost like that little Pontiac thing that makes into a tent, whenever I see one I want to ask the owner: how much did they pay you to take that thing away from the dealer's lot?[:0] I'd be too embarrassed to be seen driving something that shows soooo little taste!

                I'm going to have one for sale shortly. '62 with no engine or transmission. Sheetmetal is or will be good by the time it goes up for sale, lots of NOS sheetmetal. It'll be a complete reassembly but everything (less engine and transmission) is there. Guages have been cleaned up and look near new. Will have pictures in a couple weeks. Here's what it looked like when I bought it, nothing has really changed except for the fenders being repaired with steel. The wheels in the picture are already gone, it's got stock wheels on it now.

                        Here's one owned by a Mr. Pietz in Minnesota (hey, that's where I am!).

                            Scott,
                            I'm pretty sure that Minnesota Lark is now in PA - in our garage. We bought it a year ago last April off ebay and I recognized the steering wheel cover. She's getting a frame-off restoration as soon as we move to our farm and get settled in. With that 259, she sure drives nice.
