    Hi! Just wanted to say hello! My wife and I will be picking up our 1962 Lark Daytona on Friday and we're pretty excited to own our first classic car. We think she's a beauty.

        Score! What a nice looking convertible. That will be fun.
        As a new Studebaker owner, take advantage of membership in the Studebaker Drivers Club. You should also be able to find a local chapter to join. You'll meet some wonderful folks. Start you subscription to Turning Wheels Magazine for great reading and lots of Studebaker content.
        And, as you may have already discovered, there is lots of information and camaraderie to be found here on the Forum. When you get your Lark be sure to take lots of photos and post them here. We love photos.
        Welcome to Studebaker world. Enjoy the ride.

                Welcome to the forum, fellow Minnesotan! I believe that fine car belonged to the current President of the North Star chapter of the Studebaker Club, Maynard Lemke. I've seen it a few times and probably have a photo or two of it some where. Enjoy it!

                      I was told it's the original interior. I know it's in perfect condition, no rips or stains.

                        We bought it from Ellingson's in Rogers, MN. Don't know the previous owners name.

                          You might find more photos of your car on the local Studebaker club's chapter website: North Star Studebakers
