  • '60 Lark Antenna & mirrors location

    Does anyone have either templates or can supply measurements for locating the radio antenna and Stratoline mirrors for a '60 Lark?

    Thanks for any help!!

    David Mottle, SDC librarian should have these.

    1957 Transtar 1/2ton
    1960 Larkvertible V8
    1958 Provincial wagon
    1953 Commander coupe

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

        Does anyone know if some of these templates have ever been scanned for posterity? I do have access to a large format scanner...

            I believe Dave only has originals. You might contact him with your suggestion/offer.

                I am sure that the crank-up antennas and probably the manual ones all came with the template for drilling the hole. It goes in the left fender AND cowl, it has no more than 1/4 in. clearance to the inboard side and rear of the fender so that it goes down into the door post.

                However, I would not think that the mirrors would even have a template, because it is completely owner preference as to the owners height etc. as to where to mount it.

                But then again not knowing that, if by some rare chance someone ordered the mirrors factory mounted (as in FACTORY delivered) MAYBE they had a average spot in mind to mount them. It would be very rare however that they would be factory mounted, if you see an AC# mirror or any accessory on a build slip like wheel covers, seat belts it should be prefixed by an "X" meaning loose in the trunk. Mirrors were dealer installed at point of sale. [:0]

                    Amen on the mirrors. I think they ended up mounted wherever the owner wanted them.

                    Look at this picture and see where mine were originally mounted from the dealer. Look hard--they are right in front of the antenna on the top of the fender:

                        Regarding the mirrors, If you mount them on the doors, they should be forward of the vent window far enough so that your not looking "through the vent window post" when you look at the mirror. They should also be far enough forward that the vent window can fully open. Someone did that to my Commander and it really messes with your vision when you look through them
