    Sorry it didn't work out for you, but glad your buddy (or your buddy's wife ) got a good Stude.

    Love those roof racks! They really make a wagon (IMHO). The Stude one is pretty gosh durn cute, and not a ton of them around.

    I put a Volvo rack on the '62 wagon I had. Not as cute as the Stude one, but plentiful and cheap at Pick-Ur-Part.

    Well I guess i lost out on the 60 wagon.I was doing some last minute Christmas shopping Monday and found my self a few miles from my buddy Bob's house.I thought I'd drop by and see if he got home with the wagon.I pulled up to his shop just as he was unloading it off the trailer.I was t-totally blown away by it.
    Bob had just pressure washed it .All the glass was perfect,only rust was surface rust where it had been sanded.The interior is shot but dash and all the glass and knobs n switches were there.In the back was a roof rack and all the chrome trim ,door handles. and various other items.The body was solid no rust thru any where but had some bondo in bottom of rear quarter.I ask Bob was he going to sell me the body and he said no his wife is going to use it as a grocery getter and haul the grandkids around in parades and such.He also purchased another 259 engine and an auto tranny from the guy for 100 bux for his scotsman pickup.It didn't look as good as Dicks but for 242 dollars i think it was a steal.The seller said the motor would probably run with a good battery n clean the points etc,It also has factory power steering. Some guys have all the luck.But glad for Bob and the lark because he will restore it to its former glory and another stude saved.I wish for all my SDC members a very MERRY CHRISTMAS and A HAPPY NEW STUDE YEAR.May GOD bless each and every one.

    I just more info on the 60 lark wagon.It was the one that had the 55 pickup beside it that was talked about on the forum in another topic.My friend Bobby also bid on the pick up. It was sold locally.Turns out the cars were part of a stude collector that died a few years ago and a friend was selling them for the widow.The man selling them is also a stude guy and was very helpful in the transaction according to Bobby.He told Bob the motor would prob run but the auto trans had a cracked housing but he had some extras in his collection he would part with. Hes actully going to air up the tires n furnish more wheels n tires if those dont hold air .Thx again to Dick for all his help,also Bob said he might take the motor out n put in his 59 scotman pick up.and I could buy the body n 6 cyl from him cheap so maybe I will have me a wagon soon. Be nice to take it to South Bend .But that will entail a lot of burning the midnight oil for this old body.

    Thanks Dick.I knew Icould depend on you guys.Oh, by the way Dick ,he was prompted to buy the lark wagon after I showed him your wagon that you just cleaned up.His wife was adamant about him not starting another project until he finished reworking her kitchen.But when she saw the pictures of your lark she told him to go ahead and that the lark was going to be her driver.Would you call this a win/win , or win /lost to wife situation? Thanks again Dick .
