    Now that is a different approach to a Lark paint scheme and I like it a lot.

      Ah yes! Pretty Lark belonging to John and Diane Crooks. Wonder what those wheels are from?

        Fronts appear to be from a Mopar. Can't tell what the back ones are from.

          The fronts are definitely Mopar Rallye wheels. I remember sourcing some for a friend's '65 Barracuda.
          The rears look vaguely familiar...Chevy Citation?

            Looks like a center cap from AMC ?

              Does any one know if those front Mopar rims are sbp or bbp?

                I like the car. My daughter and wife love the color scheme. All of us agree the rims are a bit of a misfit to the look of the car. Not picking on it, just saying I think it could look even better with some more OE looking wheel covers or a simpler wheel. Kind of alot going on with the rims for a simple clean looking car.

                Nice colors and an interesting paint scheme taking the body lines and continuing them with the 2 tone.

                  If I was to guess they are a 4.5" bolt pattern.

                    Thanks, Tom. That is what I thought but wasn't quite sure! I have two extra ones from my Valiant and if I get two more I can use them on my 57 Champion. They look really good!

                      Pretty sure those rears are off a late AMC Matador. They were optional, I believe. I saw a set of these on a junkyard Matador about two years ago. I couldn't snag them that day, and the car had been fed to the crusher by the time I got back a few days later.
                      No deceptive flags to prove I'm patriotic - no biblical BS to impress - just ME and Studebakers - as it should be.

                        I have been looking at this car and imagining other color schemes using that pattern. I think almost any other top contrasting color with the same lower color and pattern would look great. I'd love to see one in red, black, navy, bright orange...you name it. One of the best I have ever seen.

                          Never thought of creating a paint break on the Lark that would echo the sculpture of the earlier C/K models. I like it and think it would lend itself to more highly contrasted colors.

                            Well if they were the same I have two from a 70ish Dart that look alike, never could find two more so gave up. They are 14" that I have.
