  • My new 62 Convert

    Just picked up my new 62 Lark Convertible. I'm so stoked. Here are a couple more pix of the chrome after a few minutes of buffing. WOW. I'm so excited about what this will look like after an hour of official "Lark Shine"

    Congrats Sal! That car would look good setting next to my 62 Hardtop. Now we need more pics!

      More pix tomorrow. Too dark now that Im home. Im really excited about it though. It has a 6 with a 3 speed, but no overdrive. I happen to think that a 289 4 speed would be pretty cool in this one.

        Nice find! Adding a V8 would be nice but perhaps put a 3 speed with OD behind it.

          That's great! It is always cool to get a new car. Especially a Studebaker convertible!

            So it IS a '62 Lark Regal (Bench Seat) 6 Cyl. Convertible then?
            Apparently Milaca knows it's a 6 from a former post.

            The rust free (or almost) like that are worth their weight in GOLD, especially Converts.

              You could be right about that V8 3 speed OD instead of the 4 speed. I can row the gears and still get a nice cruising freeway speed.
              And I could stick a Hurst shifter on it with a 4 speed knob. Only the most discerning eye would know.

                Cute. Amazing what is still floating around in dry climates, waiting to be discovered. BP

                  Very nice, the body appears straight and solid.

                  You can't beat So. California cars, except perhaps those that were close to the ocean.

                  Post some more pics when you get a chance.

                    Arizona/Nevada/New Mexico cars from the warm/low rainfall areas tend to be nice too............although they tend to suffer sunburn which can lead to rust--------yet the undercarriages are clean as a whistle.

                      or you could put a 5speed in it and have your cake and eat it too, and now that Porsche and Corvette have 7 speed manuals the 5 speed will almost be in `retro`territory. cool vert, and a v-8 will make nice music from the duals to accompany top-down motoring. cheers, Junior.

                          If you are going to stay with the six I have a 3sp overdrive out of a 58 sliver hawk.

                            Congratulations on your new Lark! I'm sure you'll "Love That Lark"
                            Had a red 1962 Lark Daytona with a white convertible top in the 1970's V8 automatic.
                            Had a lot of fun in that Lark.

                              I added these pix at the top, but just in case, here they are again.
                              Here are a couple spots with a little buffing.
