    The wheels look odd painted red, should have went with white or blue.

      Ya factory 3" exhaust also, this thing already has a bid at just under $10,000 and Peter only got around 8500.. for his nice 62 R-2 powered 4 speed car, every bit as nice as this one., again to each his own.

        I don't know that a V8 is rare in a '61... perhaps he should have instead stated it has "rare" intact tailight lenses!

        A nice looking Lark.

              I have doubts that that's a legitimate bid. There's a red 63 on eBay again that was on a couple weeks back that met reserve with one bid of $4700; MAYBE a $1500 car. Turned up again today with no explanation and the opning bid again at $4700.

              I suspect this one may be a shill bid too...

                    That is a cute little '61.

                    I'm not aware of any factory two-toning in '61, but hey, he says it's factory!

                    Small, but a big pet peeve of mine: Did the restorer not know if it's a '59 or '61? Must not have, as he put the '59 "Studebaker" front fender nameplates AND the correct '61 "Lark VIII" nameplates. This kind of thing, and careless nameplate placement, drives me up a wall as it takes no skill whatsoever to figure this out but it can be a pain taking a wrong nameplate and/or nameplate location, off the car without damage.

                      I'd like the see the build sheet for that car. I once owned a '61 Cruiser that I firmly believe was factory two-toned. The colors were yellow with a white roof; a dead ringer for City of Calgary fleet vehicles at the time. And the dealer sticker was still affixed to the rear of it which would be a sign of its original paint job. Unfortunately, I parted out the car over 30 years ago now, not realizing how rare they are. However, I still have the serial number of it handy, and next time I'm at SNM, I will look it up. I don't really want to fork over the $25 for a copy of it for a car that no longer exists!

                        Don't forget the 1961 Hawks, they were all two-toned. I also believe that 1961 was the last factory two-toning, not counting fleet/special order or vinyl tops.

                          Love the red wheels.
                          My father painted all his wheels red...

                          Easy mod to do...and to undo should the new owner desire.
                          No harm...

                            True, but I think most folks consider 'two toned' to mean a roof in a different color than the lower body.

                              The wheels have to be stock Studebaker, because the only other wheel that fits those '60 Stude. Caps is the Rambler, and it is IDENTICAL- same Budd wheel!

                              It just has some aftermarket beauty Rings with '60 Lark Hub Caps, probably the BEST looking small cap Studebaker ever made, certainly a big improvement over those ugly deep dish '61's! [xx(]

                              Bill: I agree 100%, those "Studebaker" nameplates really have to go, and it's a big job too.

                              If he really wanted Studebaker nameplates on the sides, it would have looked better ANY where but there! Door, rear quarter panel anywhere!

                              They look wrong because, for that location they need to be higher like the '59's, but then they would not match the '61's, so just a BAD idea.
