    That's why I drive the '63 just about everywhere. It's fun to give people a free show.

    That 61 is nice. Of all the Larks, I think 61 was one of my least favorite years, but in that condition, it's a good looking little car for sure.

      That's a good looking '61. Just look at the attention that car generated on this site. That's why I'm a strong proponent of driving our Studebakers as much as possible. It's good for the public to see our cars. Sometimes our cars stir up memories and sometimes people people have never seen a Stude and are fascinated by our cars.

        It's interesting how the different styles attract different opinions. My first car was a 60 Lark, but not because of that, I still prefer the 59-61 single headlight front ends. I can't say why, but the 62-63 dual headlights turn me off[sic]! I don't mind the 64-66 styling changes, but the taillights on those wagons always struck me as wrong, somehow.

          Aside from esthetics, what were the differences in the 2 door sedan and hardtop coupes interiors?

            All of the '61 Lark two door sedans were of the Deluxe variety and all of the two door hardtops were of the Regal variety. The level of trim was a step up on the Regals.

              I've never really paid much attention to early Larks, but that little two door looked great going down the highway. I love the roofline. It's a total oddball even amongst Studes.
              I love the '61 Lark roofline, too. I often wished they kept the same rear window for '62.

                I owned a 1961 Lark DeLuxe two door sedan in that same color for about nine years. It was a 259 V8 and standard transmission. It looked like the pictured car, except for the wheels. I never put dual exhaust on mine. I sold it with about 56K miles on it and lost track of it.
