          This Lark must have been campaigned before the STP corporation became a wholly owned subsidiary of the Studebaker-Packard Corporation?

            Harold Smith raced this Lark in the 1959 Daytona 500. Lois Tyler also race the car in the women's race in 1960. Thanks for posting this really cool picture.
