  • 63 Lark 2dr sedan R1 production?

    Does anyone know how many of these were built? Better yet, with a 4 speed?
    Thx

    There were 17,401 '63 Lark two door sedans built. Someone else will have to come up with the R1, 4-speed part. My guess is between zero and 15.

      I would think more than 15 with an R-1. But the 0-15 would probably be right for an R-2. Of course, R-1 numbers probably didn't reach the 100 car mark either.

        I agree that there may have been more than 15 with an R1. My 15 number was for an R1 AND a four speed in a '63 Lark two door SEDAN.

            Per the September '88 Turning Wheels on '63 R-powered cars, there were one Standard two-door sedan R-1 made, 55 Regal two-door sedan R1's made, and 34 Custom two-door sedan R-1's made--a total of 90 R1 '63 Lark two-door sedans made.

            There were 182 four-speeds out of 218 R-1 and R-2 Lark two-door sedans made--around 85% of all production. Among all R-1's (only) made, there were 349 of 783 (less than half) made with 4-speed.

            Hope this helps.

              Thanks Bill!
              Can anyone speculate as to what a fully restored R1 powered 63 Lark 2dr sedan would be worth?
              Thanks

                R1's don't bring the big bucks that the R2's do, but I'm guess 10-12K if done right.
