  • Body / Glass: 1964-66 Lark Type Stainless Window Moldings Tool

    Unlike Studebakers before the 64 (Lark type) the front and rear window stainless window moldings need to be removed before removing the window per the Body manual. The direction read: “…….insert the clip releasing tool between the vertical molding and the weatherseal (see Fig. 44B). ……”

    “Insert the tool end under the molding and over the clip, swing the tool handle opposite the point causing it to release the molding from the clip.”

    So these 1964 "Window" Surround Mouldings are Cruiser, Daytona Sedan/Wagon, Front Door and Rear Door?

    I have not noticed ANY Difference since 1963, when these Mouldings and Upper Door Frames were first used all the way to '66.

      I did it with a plain molding release tool but what a pain in the rear.

        This is what I have used. Same as GM cars of that era.

            Agree with Dwain and Doofus -- that's the right tool, and the job is not fun.

              It's for the rear window garnish moldings only. The tool pictured in post #4 is the correct tool to use. They should be available at good parts stores, or body shop supply stores.
