    Before, in this forum, I mentioned that my 62 Lark Cruiser was having mechanical problems. It turns out that to permanently solve the problem I will need to rebuild the motor. The car has a rebuilt transmission, original insides and/or upholstry, great body and paint job and has served me well. I am considering selling it and putting the money into my 61 Lark,my first and favorite. Any opinions and/or advise is welcome. Thanks

    The typical questions...........
    Where is it?
    Where is the rust?
    How much do you want for it?

    As far as opinions and advice?
    I would have no problem selling one to better the other.
    (My two daughters have other opinions about that, though)

            With an ailing engine, "fair price" isn't gonna be much. With the unknown of how bad the engine is (generally NOT well-determined until said engine is dissected and assesed - "it's got a knock" could mean that a new rod bearing would put it back on it's feet OR... the crankshaft's broken.), it's tough to put a dollar value on the cost of repairs (Couple hundred if you did the work yourself, up to several thousand - approaching the worth of a driver '62 Cruiser - if the work was done by an able shop). That unknown is gonna make any prospective buyer want to err to the worst case scenario thus diminishing the Lark's value quite a bit.
            "Original interior" can mean: it needs to be redone OR it's like new from little, or careful, use. We can't guess.
            You can come up with some sort of value and offer it here or in Turning Wheels or even on Craig's List, but with great photos and an honest, detailed description, ebay will tell you exactly what it's worth.

            1953 Commander coupe

            No deceptive flags to prove I'm patriotic - no biblical BS to impress - just ME and Studebakers - as it should be.
