    What a great car. Our Lark is Colonial Red, or at least pretty close to it. If I was ordering one I think I would chose your color. I think it is Johquil Yellow. I see it has inlulation under the hood. At a recent meet in Selma I lost points because I didn't have any. A fellow club member is sure that hood insulation was not on all Larks. What is correct? I believe all GT Hawks had hood insulation. If it makes any difference our Lark is a six.

        I may well be corrected, but I think they all had the insulation with the possible exception of some base models.

            I am not sure either, but my guess is that the Regals got it, the Deluxes did not, unless ordered.

            That is one beautiful and cute Convertible! It is so pretty especially the interior, that I would not be able to bring myself to correct all the wrong stuff, even though it would really bug me! Some is easy like the lighter, backup lights and tailpipes, but the interior is just way too pretty to correct, and none of it is correct! I love that Ginger/Carmel color Vinyl and even the beige too. Very nice car! [^] [] At least it is a tasteful and quality job!

                            I think I said that very thing about the interior the first time I listed the car. The interior is "wrong", but nicer then the right one. BTW, I love the car too, but I was afraid to admit it.
