  • Body: Backup lights

    1962 Lark wagon. I just found a pair of the optional backup lights for my wagon. They have an oddball curve shape to the mounting surface so it must be done right. Does anyone already have these mounted and could give me some dimensions? The distance from the bottom of the tail light to the top of the backup light and the distance from the edge of the tailgate opening to the near side of the backup light.
    Thanks
    Warren

        Get the Studebaker template for installing these. The templates are now administered by the SNM for SDC. I believe that you can find them from this site.

            This is the '61 I had; I no longer have the car but you might be able to scale the pic to get a good idea.

              I would recommend getting the template instead of eyeballing.

                I have contacted the museum and as soon as they are back in business, they will help me out.

                  Studebaker didn't make 2-door wagons after 1961--only 4-doors.

                    Oddly the Chassis Parts book shows a listing for back-up lights for both D & P models in 1962.

                      There was a story a while back (maybe in Turning Wheels) about a small order of 2-door wagons (titled as 1962s) built for a commercial customer near the end of the 1961 model production run. But, those used the 1961 body, so they had the oval taillights rather than the round 1962 taillights.
