  • "Forlorn" Red Studebaker Wagon sighting in Kansas

    I'm sorry I don't have anymore info than what I have here.

    Some friends, while back at Ft. Riley KS a couple of weeks ago
    spied this forlorn Red Wagon, somewhere between Ft Riley and
    Manhattan, Kansas. If anyone is interested, the phone # on the
    metal building, in the background is: 785 341 2598.

    That is a '62 Deluxe Lark Wagon, appears to be fairly complete except the engine, not in bad shape either if you can love the ugliest Wagon they ever built.

    I know of lots of them that were used up over the years by Stude. parts guys hauling swap meet parts, engines you name it, a good solid dependable machine with a V-8 engine of course.

                Gee, I could use a 62 Lark wagon with a growing family and all, I already have a 62 hardtop and a couple of extra engines but it would almost need to be beyond cheap because of ongoing low budget

                Any KS members nearby?

                  I just googled the phone number listed at the head of this thread and it came up as unlisted, unassigned or a cell phone number. so I may need to actually call to discover if it is in service

                        Okay, back to the "ugly" thing. What is so ugly about a '62 wagon? Why is it anymore ugly than a '61 or '63. Am I missing something? I certainly don't think the '62 in this thread is ugly.

                          Definitely 2 things I can think of: The round taillights that look way worse than the 59-61s, and the side trim that doesn't go back all the way, just awkwardly stops That's the distinction for me.

                            I had to look in "Studebaker: the complete history" to get a better look at the the 62 wagon's side trim... You're right, it just ends??!! Is the tail light pod part of the fender or grafted on and detchable? I can only guess that Studebaker wanted tail light conformity at all costs for the 62 model year.

                              And, inexplicably, the taillights for the 62 wagons fit nothing else

                              All I can figure is in 1961 all the top designers were hard at work on the Wagonaire, and they turned the current wagon over to the janitor and said, "Here, do something with this"<GG>
