  • Pa barn find... Sort of

    I found a super complete studebaker lark in a local junk yard I'm guessing it's a 63, but this isn't my area.4dr Blue on blue it has everything down to the hubcaps it has the old school clear vinyl protective covering on the seats it has a little bit of rot in the rear door jambs but that is it complete drive train and all trim I would call it amazing condition I am not a stude guy but I would hate to see this rot into the ground I thought this would be the right place to post it. it is at murphy's in Scottdale pa the #is 7246281610 Murphy is a weird cat he hates to sell whole cars and it would have a salvage certificate but maybe somebody could get lucky any way good luck and let me know if it survives.

        Yes that is probably Dawson that is in the Scottdale greater metropolitan area I hope somebody gets the whole thing I have restored many vehicles and this is a great base for us nor Easters you guys can pay it forward by keeping an eye out for any firebirds 67 to 81 (esp 71 to 73)which is what I was hunting on that junk yard pick

          Thanks for sharing this! I'm in NY and a Lark lover; but it's too late in the year for me to plan a rescue... especially an 850-mile round trip. Does make me curious, though.

          BTW, when I saw your 'handle' I pegged you as a fellow Trans Am lover Most people I know wouldn't get the reference.

            I am in the minority of your friends then. I never owned a Trans Am, or any Firebird, but that is the first thing that I thought of (from his handle).
            I did own a Studebaker pckup with a Trans Am subframe and driveline.
            I remember a female friend that wanted a car with that big bird on the hood. I thought that it was a little much for a conservative, mother type. She did buy a 1987 (?) Grand National new that she kept for a long time (may still have it, but not her everyday car now).

                Screamin' chicken--

                There's a small dealership just west of here (in Dundas ON) that sells classics in the summer...the owner's personal ride is a '65 Chevy police car in LAPD markings. This past summer, up till about October in fact, he had four second-generation Firebirds out front, all of them T/As. Shoot me a PM and I'll send you a couple pix I took of them when I dropped by with my Lark...Meantime, here's a Firebirdesque vehicle seen at last winter's Toronto car show (they had an F-body retrospective going on). Lingenfelter Wanda...current Camaro in '70 Firebird guise!


                Incidentally, the two-door Studebaker sedans (my 62 Lark is one) are, in Studebaker code, "F bodies" as well. Hm. How would a T/A bird look on my Lark's hood, I wonder? :-)
