    Great car. Amazing how Dr. Jekyll + Mr. Hyde that car is with that simple wheel swap.

      Great! No cheap bling or glamor. Just quiet elegance with a touch of "don't mess with me," confidence look. Treat it well and you should have a ride to enjoy for decades to come.

                  The Lark looks good. What does "I been in Tech..." mean?

                      Thank you. I was thinking that you were attending some sort of technical school.
                      I, and many others, simply use the "What's New" button and do not look at what section of the Forum the posting is on.

                          You might put some bolts in the holes where the front bumper guards came off. That will strengthen the bumper as I am assuming that there are bumper brackets behind those holes.

                          Also the bumper guards that are still on the car are for a later Lark type Studebaker, for whatever that is worth.

                            where to buy bolts, can't find them, not a top priority, and the guards fit perfect, and you say they are for later models?

                              The bumper guards are for (I believe) 1962-66 Larks & Lark-types. To me, they are a lot better looking than the bulky ones used on 1959-61 Larks. But, I don't use bumper guards either -- I like the bumpers better without them. You are left with round holes in the bumper where the bumper guards were. The chrome (actually stainless steel capped) bumper bolts correct for your bumper are oval (ok, racetrack shaped), and they have a square shank to keep them from turning when you tighten them. Those round holes will have to be made square for the bolts to go in (using a square drill bit). I have the same issue right now with my 64 Hawk and am not looking forward to all that filing (or whatever).
