  • 1960 Lark - forum registry

    All right folks, if you have a 1960 Lark (or know of one) - lets see them. Put up all the information you have and a photo or two would be icing on the cake. Please leave out any personal information - someone can pm you if they want to "talk." Dates in ( ) are when the vehicle was added to the thread - all you need to do is click on the VIN to go to that car's post. Don't forget about those 1960 Champs - http://forum.studebakerdriversclub.c...843#post870843

    OK - lets see what you have. I will post links in this initial post - so you can either scroll through all the posts or simply click on the serial number above and go straight to that post. And this does not have to be a car you own - could be one you know of or one that is for sale you saw somewhere - just want to see how many we can come up with.

        ID plate - 60S-11418
        Body plate - 60S-W4 3636
        W4 Deluxe four door sedan- velvet black with red/black cloth interior (repaint in 1980s - interior still original - minus rubber floor covering).
        Factory installed accessories: Overdrive, dry air cleaner with silencer, undercoating, climatizer, and regal upgrade kit.



        Final assembly date - September 30, 1959
        Destination - La Grange, Texas

        Sold at the La Grange Auto Clinic in December of 1959



        Car remained just outside of La Grange until about 1983 when it was found by a Studebaker Drivers Club member James Terry of Cameron, Texas. Car had 32K miles on it at that point and was all original, including interior. Was purchased and because of weak paint, it was repainted a short time later.

        Car was sold in 2001 to third owner and we bought it in 2003. Upon purchase it was showing 47K miles - as of summer, 2017, it has 54K. Car now lives in the Frankfort, Kentucky area.











        Car show from 2006 when it was still wearing its full wheel covers - since retired.



        Stainless exhaust from north of the border - medium tone muffler sounds great...



        Photo from the summer of 2016 - car was sold new in Texas - but photo was taken in Kentucky



        A little closer to being back to what it was when new...got rid of the chrome grill surround and chrome headlight ring.



        Car finally returned to South Bend for the first time in May of 2017 for the International Studebaker Meet.



        So the time has come to let the Lark go. New owner is picking her up on September 19th, 2019, and taking her to a new home. She will continue on here in the blue grass.

              SOLD, where do I pay? That is ONE SWEET '60 Lark VIII Regal even has Back-Up Lights!
              They look so cool with the Window surround Mouldings, Padded upper & Lower dash, Deluxe Steering Wheel and Horn Rim, Grill surround Moulding, Chrome Head Light Rims and all, if I had a Deluxe I would have to sell it, or add a LOT of stuff!

              What no '59 Lark registry? Virtually the same Car, just not quite as neat without the curved Body side 1/4 Panel Moulding.

                Too late to get the numbers. My brother drove it off an embankment in about '78 with only 30,000 miles. 60 Lark VI 2DR, dark green, dark green tint, green cloth interior and OD. Bought new by my great-aunt, in or around Schenectady, New York. Would love to find another one.

                          Looks like it is almost TOTALLY stripped down for the crusher, was Oasis Green but has a light blue '59 Front clip added.
                          If I were going to take everything but the Main Body and 2 Doors off, I would also keep the front clip, ...strange.

                          NOW, it's For Sale! The Blue Lark behind it is a 2 Door, so not all of the Body Parts will fit it.

                            Very sharp Little Lark VI ! Those 4 Doors have to be a bit Rare in Velvet Black.

                            I spent quite a while going through the '59-'64 Body Parts Catalog, checked the Part Number Index, then my March 1, 1961 and also the '62 Parts and Accessories Price Book "F" trying to find the 1337070 W4 Trim upgrade Kit hoping it would mention the contents... NO Luck not listed in either, not even a Price. I guess it could have been out stock by then.

                            I am pretty sure it was just the Windshield and Backlight Stainless Trim.

                            You could purchase the Standard on Regal, Deluxe Steering Wheel with Horn Ring and or the Padded Dash Top only, I believe as Factory Options on Deluxe's, but that was about it.

                            The Chrome Headlight Rims and Grille Moulding, I believe had to be ordered after sale and swapped out if desired.

                              You could purchase the Standard on Regal, Deluxe Steering Wheel with Horn Ring and or the Padded Dash Top only, I believe as Factory Options on Deluxe's, but that was about it.

                              The Chrome Headlight Rims and Grille Moulding, I believe had to be ordered after sale and swapped out if desired.
                              I also wonder if the W4 kit included rear arm rests, passenger door arm rests, and passenger sun visor - car has those as well. Maybe there is a service bulletin or dealer publication that explains what is in that kit. TW article on these cars simply gives the order number (80) and "various" under the prices.

                              The extra shinny bits on this car were added by the second and third owners from the mid-80's to about 2001. I have removed the radio and will try to get the other items back to original when the time comes. Third owner also bought the NOS regal steering wheel - looks nice but would like to go back to an all black wheel eventually.
