        It's not "Vanity" it's "Varsity!" I wish these guys would get that right!

          I guess that you are referring to the regular Lark that they are calling a Cruiser model. I wrote to them about these two items and neither received a reply nor see any correction in their listing.

            LOL, friends used to give newbies the front passenger seat in the “Vanity Wagonaire” to see if they’d notice.

            Some of the more fun comments:

            - “Yes, it’s one of seven “Deadly Sins limited edition.” You do NOT want open the glovebox of the “Wrath” version.

            - “Vanity is when you think you’re too good to get out and push.”

            - “if your color combination was Champagne Gold over Bordeaux Red, you’d be vain, too...or at least less uptight”

            - “Yeah, that mirror shows how much older you’ll look after experiencing my driving.

            - “Yes, as a matter of fact, it was owned by the co-star of ‘Purple Rain’.”

            My friends were smart***es.

              I have now received a reply from the seller. He thanked me and said that he will make changes in his listing (I haven't checked it).
              He also asked what I thought that it was worth. I suggested making it an auction with a starting price of $500 and let the market tell him the price.

                As an addition to this thread, here’s a ‘vanity addition’. And only $9800 for a $2500 car :/

                  Yes, that's a pretty expensive Lark. Especially since it has four doors, and a six cylinder power plant.

                    That is the car that I was referring to. He acknowledged and thanked me for my input, but has yet to make changes.

                      Not that it’s going to matter until he gets rational on the price.

                          Part of my comment/suggestion was to put it in an auction format with a $500 starting bid and let the market tell him the current price.
