    Let me know how things look, I have been on the lookout for Wagonaire parts for years and have duplicates of almost anything including "optional items"
    I ended up buying 3 wagonaire parts cars and anything I saw at swap meets.

    The toughest parts to find are the 63 dash and the headliner/ interior trim parts

    Mine is slowly moving along as a 'custom' I found myself in the same boat as other 63 Lark guys, so I am using a 64 dash.

    I am using 61 lark gauges and speedo, a large matching tach and tri guage cluster so everything is white face with black letters/numbers

    The headliner situation may also be solved soon, as well as the small plastic end cap trim parts for the rear slider rails. I did find a cheap way out for the headliner and looking to improve on it.

    SASCO did have rear area cargo wood, with carpet and other carpet 'chunks' in blue and red. Not sure which vendor ended up with those.

    I did not like the A/M mirrors so I re chromed originals, as well as the tailights. Finding good housings is rare.

    Looks so much further along then Sandi's Hawk and we have been (slowly) working on hers for a year and a half.
    Pat had done a lot of the heavy lifting on this one. This will make it a lot easier for me than starting from scratch.

    I didn't get to meet Dave in person, but super nice guy over the phone. Did exactly what he said he would, kept me informed, great price. He and my son in law hit it off right away.

    I'll have fun with it for sure.

    Thanks, Mike.

    My son in law thought the same and took the wrap off before it went in the garage.

    I appreciate your heads up on this, however.

    Wow! A Studebaker in it's original shrink-wrap packaging! It's amazing that some over-eager kid didn't spoil it by opening it already.

    Wow, my plastic wrap job held up the whole way - I'm shocked, er I mean I'm not surprised.

    Hope it kept everything dry and safe, I never wrapped a car before.

    The Wagonaire is home

    Pat's Wagonaire was delivered in Bellingham today. Unfortunately I'm in Chico, CA, but my son in law got it off the transport and into my shop. Looks good from here!

    Thanks Pat.
