  • Before and after pics - 1961 Lark

    005.jpg038.jpg

    This is a 1961 Lark I brought home from country New South Wales last year. We had gone to look at a couple of GT Hawks that were too far gone to save but found this surprising solid Lark out in the weather. We still had an empty car trailer so I wasn't going to leave empty handed..... It just had to be saved.

    Chris.

      Nice job; it appears to have been that quite rare Turquoise Green '61 Color, nice!

      You must have put in the HD Station Wagon front springs unless the Engine is still out, that's a pretty high stance.

            WOW!, GOOD FOR YOU!! You really did save that little Lark....And I'd never guess those two photos were of the same car! PS...looks like that Stude V8 is set up for a four barrel carb?

              You are right about the color. It was fairly common on Australian assembled Larks.

              The motor is fitted but it does sit high in the front. I am not sure if the springs are original.

              The motor is a 289 from a 1961 Hawk.

                Beautiful job. You'd never know that it's the same car. You did a wonderful job. The color is terrific.
