    I agree with StudeRich that it is AC-3012 (i have one here) but this number is listed for 1959-63 cars. The earlier ones (1953-58) have a raised black plastic peice around the base and a round chrome knob at the tip. You have to ignore the photos in the 1959-63 accessory brochures. They used artwork from earlier models and airbrushed over them to add confusion!

    OK KURTREUK, I'll muddy it up some for you (maybe). If you decide the price is right, it could look EXACTLY like the one that fits my '52 Commander.......................lol. Very little besides the drivetrain is gonna be original anyhow, so what the hey. Seriously, when I first saw the words "Roll-Up Antenna", and being a neophyte Studebaker owner/collector (almost) (and I say owner/collector because I don't think I've ever known someone that stopped at just ONE Studebaker), I thought they surely wouldn't go to the trouble of making an antenna that rolled up/down, but wouldn't make it go down till flush with the fender, would they? Sure enough, they not only Would, but DID...................lol. I figured since I'm making my '52 into a Mild Custom, if I could find an actual Stude antenna that fit flush, it would be extra great. Since they don't wind flush, it'd be great if I could lay my hands on 2 of them (that work well and The Price Is Right, as they say....................lol), and of course, if I could find room to mount them-----one behind (or beside, depending how you look at them) and slightly higher than the other, the way Custom cars have had them (usually electric antennae, though) for yrs. Oh well, since I'm sure they're beyond my meager build budget, I guess I've wasted enough of your time.

    How's that for muddying the waters for ya? LOL.

    As I said the black "seal' on the mast makes it '62-'66 absolutely NO QUESTION, however if there are different mounting screw locations for the bottom end for Lark/Hawk you would need the dimensions, I really doubt that though. All Antennas in my Parts & Accessories Price Book F show Lark/Hawk/Sedan the same in each year range of design change.

    Of course, what you really need is it's AC numbered original box to sell it as NOS ITB, if it is!

    Some where I have an accessory booklet for C-Cab trucks showing one of these style antennas for trucks. Could this be one? Also, would they be a different length than the ones offered for cars?

    Who to believe? ? ?

    I was reluctant to put on eBay without being more confidant about what it fits.

    This is what has been said so far:

    56-61 Hawk.
    62-66 Lark/Hawk.
    60 Lark. Also 60-64 Hawk.
    Not for cars with Emergency brake pedal on that side.
    56-64 Hawk.

    Good Grief!!! I need to generate some cash. Anyone else care to muddy it up some more?

    These will not fit cars with the emergency brake pedal along that side . I have a NOS one of these which is for 62 and down ....its outside piece is exactly like my '66 ant. but the inside part will not fit because of the brake .

    No, Roy. Did not see one at Turlock.[|)] Picked this up somewhere else. I'll never tell.[:I]

    OK. So I'm getting some saying 1960. Some saying 62-66, etc. Anyone else?

    They were made for 1960 Lark. Also, they were made for 1960 to 1964 Hawks. I have 2 on the work bench. Hard to fix. But still working on it.

    It looks exactly like the correct one for my 1960 car. It's in the accessory booklet. I found a nos one in the box and if I'm not mistaken, that's the same one. I have mine out right now with the kick panel. I'll measure it when I get back there.

    It is the more common AC-3012 '62-'66 Lark/Hawk Internal Controlled Type, hardly ever sold or installed in the day, but tons of left over ones sold later by Newman and Altman. [^]
