    That R2 Lark was at York in 2013 and looks about the same except for some detailing under the hood. The asking price was $14,500. Not sure what it sold for but it did sell right away.

    Here is the direct link:

      Not a Super Lark (column shift automatic, clock vs tachometer), but very interesting and nice car.

        I saw that car at York also and it's very nice. I'd have to put the full wheel covers on it right away, but I see they're included with the car!

        It was my understanding that a tach came with any R engine--my '63 Daytona serial no. 63V-5224 had one--but I remember seeing the production order for this red car and it said 'clock' on it, so someone specified it.

        I'd be seriously considering this car if the money were available (sigh).

          Yes, the build sheet is posted here---> http://forum.studebakerdriversclub.c...-at-York-today

          And a few more R2 Larks came with a clock instead of a tach: http://forum.studebakerdriversclub.c...arks-Had-Tachs

            My old '63 had the tach that was not the lettering/numerals that were on Avanti tachs. I was lucky I guess! My car's final assembly date was 9/28/62.

              Well...finally...a great presentation. We see so many vehicles thrown out with poorly written ads. This is one that should cause folks to look closer. It is well photographed, and the verbiage written to awaken passion that might otherwise be lost on the uninformed. Obviously, this owner wants top dollar for his car and has taken the time to develop a worthwhile presentation.

                Looks like a nice car,.....but that automatic on the column and the term 'muscle car' really don't work well together.

                  Many, if not most, Plymouth Road Runners had column mounted automatics and bench seats...as did many Dodge Chargers and Coronets. You could certainly have bucket seats and floor shifters...you just had to pay for the option.

                      I agree about Road Runners and column automatic. 1966-1967 Chargers only came with bucket seats in front (and the back in 1966) and floor shift automatic.
                      Remember, many of these cars were purchased by young, single guys who preferred the bench seat and column shift.

                        Sure, I know that...............but this little Lark is CRYING for a four speed!! (IMHO)

                          I had both a '66 and '67 Charger before coming to my right mind and getting back to Avantis. My '66 had buckets and floor shift automatic...my '67 had the mother-in-law jump seat between the seats with a 4-speed floor shifter. I've seen many of the ramp back Chargers with column shifters. It depended on which engine or how it was optioned. Even some Plymouth Superbirds came with column shift as the base setup with automatics.

                            Without seeing the ad battery hold down is my guess.
