      Neat car, have seen it many times. And John Kelly (the owner) is one of the nicest Studebaker guys you would want to meet!

        I can remember about 1960 or 1961 that my brother bought five former Lark taxicabs at one time. They were all black and had plain red vinyl upholstery.

          I've seen this one in person. It's really neat!!! There was a story told that there were 6 studebaker lark taxi's in a junkyard outside Wilson, N.C. I tried to get access 3 times, closed, no one around, disconnected phone. It was many years ago, now I guess just folklure.

          take care

              I specifically remember when I was a kid Louisville had some 1966 Studebaker taxi's. I remember the Refreshaire vents in the back.

                When I was a kid growing up in Woodbridge, New Jersey I remember the local taxi service had one taxi, a 61 Lark being used. They were located directly across from the train station parking lot, next door to the candy store where I made my usual stop when there was change in my pocket. A few years later (1965?) I bought a 61 OHV 6 from Artie Cutler in South Amboy who told me it had been in a taxi & was on its 3rd rebuild, which I installed in my then 59 Lark. I dont know if it was from the same taxi in Woodbridge or another, but it sure ran strong!
