  • I have to sell my 1962 Lark. :(

    http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eB...CA:MOTORS:1123

    Like many of us as of late; the economy still refuses to improve, read that work is very slow so I have to let my 1962 Lark go.

      Love those 62s! Good thing for me it's not Stude powered or I might be tempted...

      This is the problem with modifying them; it really hurts the saleability. You'll have to find just the right buyer that wants an altered 4-door Lark. Tough task.

      Good luck with your sale.

        hate to hear that with all the hard work you've put into it. Hope the sell works out for you or better yet work picks up and you don't have to sell.

          good luck with the sale! i understand the why... mine was medical bills and disability.

          a few more pics may help the sale - especially underneath...

            You know... it would help your sale considerably to attach more... complementary pictures. ie: pull the Tow Truck further away out of the shot. Also, it would be helpful to know if the car can be driven, is currently registered, etc... I'm not being critical just to be mean, only to be helpful. You have a decent car, it just wants a bit better marketing.

              Work is very slow here but I still have the Lark and can do it as funds become available. In any case please stay around the forums I enjoy your contributions.

                Car starts, run and stops. Clear title in my name. Tires are junk and the windshield wiper motor doesn't work.

                  I know Studes can be a money pit. If tough times have arrived, cutting yours loose is perfectly understandable. Hate to think of it, but I'd do the same. I hope you stay around the NG, your posts have been interesting and informative.

                  What kinda Ford did you get the 2.79 rear end out of?

                    Thanks for the kind words.

                    The rear end is (probably) a 1975-80 Granada/Monarch unit; that's what I ordered new wheel cylinders for and they fit perfectly.

                        Thus far: one bid on eBay; if I can't get at least my Reserve Price, I'll keep the car and throw a Jeep CJ Chevy V8 conversion radiator in so I can at least drive it safely. I wanted to have my Stude radiator rebuilt but; $200 for a Jeep unit vs. getting mine done @ almost $600 makes a difference right now.
