    We've got to quit saying, "How stupid can you be?" Too many people are taking it as a challenge.

    Ayn Rand:
    "You can avoid reality, but you cannot avoid the consequences of avoiding reality."

    G. K. Chesterton: This triangle of truisms, of father, mother, and child, cannot be destroyed; it can only destroy those civilizations which disregard it.

      Actually, I'm betting they're the same.

          Maybe it's a freudian slip....subconsciously maybe I wish the ugly lark would turn into a hawk!

                  hawk is the same as 53-57 sedan. NOT the same as 64 lark with singles or in my case 61 lark with singles!

                    What about Champ buckets? Weren't they '60 front fenders and therefore headlamp assemblies? I'd offer you a set out of one of mine, but used them on Bess. Sorry.[:I]

                        Are the 61 assemblies different than the 59-60's? I think the chrome outer ring is different, but are the guts? If not, I know of a couple 59-60 parts car owners I can send you to if you drop an email.

                            According to the Chassis catalogue, the headlamp buckets (or body) are different between '60 to '61. Canada also seems to have used a different one in '61 as well. So, if the car in question was Canadian, it's yet different again.

                              Didn't check my catalog..actual different part, or just a different/new part number? Had my 60 conv next to a 61 conv the other weekend and forgot how many little things were unique to that '61 Lark. Many things were good upgrades like the light switch.
