    I'm new to Studebaker's also. I just took delivery of my "new" 65 Cruiser in February. You will LOVE that car. I drive mine almost daily and it's a joy on the highway. It get's more thumbs up and comments than any car I've ever owned.

    When you stop for gas prepare to be there for a while--you'll get many questions

      Oh, I forgot to mention...I've found new NOS bumpers at Stephen Allen's Studebaker down on Florida. Give them a call.

        Timm,
        That sounds like a great little car and a great project. With that V8 in there, I bet she moves. As far as bumpers go, my 1965 Commander rear bumper was twisted from the original owner bumping into something or other. While at the International Meet in South Bend in 2002 I went to Sasco and bought one of their bumpers that was still in the original factory wrapping! It was cool to unwrap it for the first time in about 30 years. I think it looks great. We just added, a few weeks ago, a 1960 Lark convertible to our collection. It needs some work as well. The only downfall is I don't know it's history...yet. Good luck on your project.

          I have noticed a couple of comments about bumpers in this thread. I think that I should mention to those new to Studebakers that 1961 Lark bumpers are a one year item. 1959-1960, 1961, 1962-1963 and 1964-1966 are the general groupings of similar bumper types for Lark-type Studebakers. The subject 1961 Cruiser uses the one year only 1961 front and rear bumpers that have a dip in the center section. I sold some NOS and good used ones to Bill Cathcart. You might try him. It has been awhile, but they are not fast moving items.
