    Here is a photo of our Lark Convertible which is factory Jonquil Yellow with Maroon trim which is quite rare since most yellow cars had black trim or saddle. We built it out of a lot of NOS parts and the car was a sol cal car with a mint body which made the restoration fairly easy as restorations go. It is probably one of only half dozen 60 Lark Convertibles in the country. Brian.

      That is a beautiful car, Brian. Nicely done. [^]
      Do you have a boot cover for your convertible top? I picked up a few at the South Bend meet. It would have to be dyed to be your correct color, though.
      We have a local member, Ed Pamer, that has that rare color combo, too.

        Thanks Dave,yes we have one made by our trimmer out of the orignal trim material. That photo is from when the car was just finished and was showed at it's first concourse. That's a great shot of your car in the snow Dave.

          Since the car was originally a USA car, I assume that your work also included the conversion to right hand drive.

              Yes Gary,it was'nt too hard, just used local studie dash frame,steering box and rod the rest remained the same. In the conversion I also fitted a suspended pedal setup and mounted a brake booster & master cylinder on the firewall like a 63, as well as disc brakes. The car drives & brakes excellent. Regards Brian.
