    Nice, Wayne; looks like a good place to start...or even drive as is. That engine number is within the sequence for 1959 V8s and about right for that Serial Number range, so the original Production Order will probably confirm that it is the original engine, too. Best. 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."

    G. K. Chesterton: This triangle of truisms, of father, mother, and child, cannot be destroyed; it can only destroy those civilizations which disregard it.

            I am really joining this love fest late but I really like your Lark! I have one that is identical to yours. It is currently in pieces but should be done by Spring. Welcome,! Superbaker
