    There were NO California built Larks. The Vernon plant closed in 1956.

        I think you might be referring to South Bend vs Hamilton (Canadian) Larks.

                    My Hamilton built 64 Daytona has a large decal on the passenger side of the windshield with the slogan "Ask the man who owns one". I wasn't sure if it was a factory item or if someone added it later. Anyone?

                        "Ask the man that owns one" was a slogan of the Packard Motor Car Company, not of Studebaker. It is actually one of the most enduring and recognizable advertising lines ever created.

                            I had two '64 wagons which incidentally, George has now in Oregon. One was Canadian, the other was a South Bend car. The two were largely identical. The only differences were trim and the steering wheel. Well, that and the Candian car was a manual and the SB car was automatic.
