        Keep them coming guys!
        I just got a wheel on mine.
        17x7 with a 4" backspace and 215/55/17 tire.
        Barely fits the rear but it fits!

          Wow, I thought I was the only one! The early Lark design is so endearing but I also dislike the stainless trim on the '61 but dig the "eyebrow" treatment. I realize it was done to update the look of the design but what were they thinking? I've thought about trying to utilize the "eyebrow" on my 59 but hate to take away from it's original design. I also am not a fan of the Chevy Corvair type double headlight bezels which were a fashionable option in '61 although it appears most people did pony up for that option.

            I'll post a few of my more favorite Larks (not mine)
            I own a 61 Lark VIII 2 door sedan that I am looking to restore/modify.
            I will keep it all Studebaker but with some modern touches.
            This may not be what you had in mind, but these pictures of my first Studebaker and first new car was taken in September, 1962 when I had just completed a 1500-mile trip from Rhode Island to Kansas with my wife and new baby son. I made a bed of the passenger side recliner, drove to the hospital, picked up the new family and hit the road on a Friday afternoon arriving at the destination Sunday afternoon.

                Bob Munter's shop is the best. I like to travel from Atlanta to his shop every couple of years. He goes over the car and keeps it in tip-top shape.
                My Wife & I make a vacation out of it. Great bunch of guys.

                Always fun to see what other Studes are in the shop, or getting restoration services.

                  Here's my retirement project.
                  My 60 Lark, 2dr. wagon with a documented 23+ thousand miles on it.
                  C4 Vette front suspension, Ford 9" in the back with a 4 link suspension. A 383 Chevy, and a Turbo 200-4R with a trans. brake. And despite having skinny front tires on it now, a full 9' wide wheel/tire (like the original Vette wheel's offset) will fit without hitting anything.
                  Have lots'a floor work left to do, finish the inner fender wells and put it together. Still has the original paint on it.

                              If Studebaker offered a 'Standard' trim level in 1960, this would be it!

                                Here is my 61',
                                Two tone, removed ALL trim. Very happy with the final job, just took me a long time to wet sand it to where I was happy! Just thought of this, the light blue in this photo looks white but its far from white. The sun and camera washed out the light blue.
