  • '64 Lark

    Hello,

    new to the forum.

    I am considering buying a 1964 Lark,
    I have yet to go and see it but i was directed to the forum from Jason's Studebaker Guide blog.

    He said possibly someone on the forums may have once owned the Lark and know some history on it. If not any thing to look out for when considering getting into this model of Studes?

    Thanks

    Ben, That car has been on craigslist for months and months. That is a bit of money to pay for a car of that caliber. I think if you were to look for a bit longer, you would find a 64 4 door for the same money that does not need as much as this car does. If you look at the body work on the car, you'll see that there is not much of a straight panel anywhere on this car. I can't imagine what the interior looks like, but be patient and you'll find a much nicer car for about the same money. Good luck.

      I have had the same question. I have seen this car on Craigs list and the price vary from $1400 - $1900. Looks pretty solid, but I have never gone and looked at it. I bought a '63 instead, so am no longer interested in the car. Has potental for that price.

        I'd need to look at it to see about any rust out. May be a decent car for an offer. Got AC plus it's a Cruiser. jimmijim

          $1900 for a currently driving V8 car? Sounds reasonable to me! If I was on that coast I'd have been really interested. As mentioned it has been lower- maybe $1500 cash would buy it by now!

          IMO, it doesn't have to be very nice for that price. Worth a look anyway!

            Well if it is truly a "Muscle Car" as advertised, it would have to have had a little chrome surrounded plastic Oval on that front fender where the two holes are that said "Avanti Powered" R1 or "Avanti Supercharged" R2.

            I wonder what is on the right fender and under the hood? [?]

              How about a decent '65? I think it's still for sale. Let me know if I can help- it's in my area.

                64s are the best driving Studes, i suppose 65-66 are also. as with about any car they get better the newer they are. Driving my 55 and my 64 is like day and night, but the 55 has more style.

                  My most favorable Stude is my 63 GT. It rides and handles great. I have had a few Studes 56 Power Hawk, 64 - 63 Cruisers, 60 Lark Regal 4 dr. 65 Commander. 63 Lark Wagon. They all handled well and rode good as any car or better that I can remember. All V8's and power steering. I liken the GT's ride and feel to a 64 Sedan Deville I used to own. 64 Cruisers will always be on my top 3 Stude list. Fine cars. Hope to own one again some day. {spelling edit} jimmijim
