    Well, you see what happens when you don't have a battery hold-down...the squirrels take over! [:0] BP
    We've got to quit saying, "How stupid can you be?" Too many people are taking it as a challenge.

    Ayn Rand:
    "You can avoid reality, but you cannot avoid the consequences of avoiding reality."

        My guess is the squirrels are using the battery hold-down to crack all those nuts! They look like they are pretty busy.

        Glad to see they haven't wrecked the dash cover - many '63 owners would love to get thier hands on it...

                Yeah, that dash cover looks pretty good for a '63! I SWEAR this same car was on ebay or maybe Craigs list last year. I remember noting that it was up your way, Anne, but being a 6 (and being yet another dead Studebaker), I tried (and obviously succeeded) to forget about it.

                No deceptive flags to prove I'm patriotic - no biblical BS to impress - just ME and Studebakers - as it should be.

                        To summarize what we know, up to now (5 O-Clock NBC News style!):

                        This is a 1963 Stude. Lark 6 Regal 2dr. sedan (63S-F4) with OHV 170 engine, Flight-O-Matic Trans, Green Mist with standard Green cloth & vinyl interior, Climatizer and Automatic may be the only options. No Clock, Radio, bumper guards, power steering, power brakes, air conditioning or tinted glass. Pretty much standard for a lower level 2dr. Sedan especially a 6.

                        Only downside would be if you repaired and drove it, the lightweight aluminum case type AS Transmission would not be the best long term low cost driver, because of strength, dependability and repair cost issues.

                        Has fair dash, very nice steering wheel, body looks quite straight except decklid, surface rust on the front clip only.

                        This would restore and become a Super Lark R1 or R2 clone very nicely, GOOD find Anne![^] Now to find out if it's for sale! [}][]

                                I'd love to get my hands on that dash!

                                Note ignition switch in common "retracted" position
