    Yea Mark, and leave the paint and wheels as they are. Leave the rusted single tail pipe in place, but use turn-downs with quiet mufflers. That might freak some people out

        That Lark appears not to have an engine, because of the front end height. But, the description says it does. I noted the sellers' references to "Northern Connecticut" and "Southern Connecticut". I did not realize that that particular state was LARGE enough in area to have various geographical regions.

            It does have an engine, but it's not installed. I was surprised that this car did not seem to have much rust which would be expected coming from the northeast. Also, the interior was in amazingly good condition.

            Would be a nice sleeper.

                if you look at all the pictures, it shows the engine out and apart. The little car looks like a solid piece though

                    It's engine is currently in pieces. A rebuild attempt that never got further than some disassembly. Then the seller realized that parts were too expensive compared to other vintage autos. Kind of a sad excuse for a car that's been in the family since new![V]
                    I'd LOVE to have any one of the cars back that my dad drove during my younger years, but I'm QUITE certain each of them has been recycled SEVERAL times since then. In fact, maybe some tool I've used that came from across the Pacific, has had trace amounts of our family '53 Nash Statesman or '48 Chevy fastback or even dad's '61 Mercury Monterey.[V]

                    Miscreant adrift in
                    the BerStuda Triangle!!

                    1957 Transtar 1/2ton
                    1960 Larkvertible V8
                    1958 Provincial wagon
                    1953 Commander coupe

                    No deceptive flags to prove I'm patriotic - no biblical BS to impress - just ME and Studebakers - as it should be.

                        He's obviously not aware of the club. He states: "Parts are not as easily or cheaply available as other vintage cars".

                        I'm not sure what he's been smoking, but he should try to buy some body parts for a 57 Chevy
