    I hope its a convertible , About 9" to the right of the steering column is a chrome handle move it to the right or left to get the top to go down ,Its on the bottom of the dash board , Also unlock the two top latches on the windshield header which is above your head behind the sunvisors , And you should unzip the rear window and lay it in the top well , Finally if the top was never replaced or not replaced correctly there is a velcro strip to the right and left of the rear quarter window depending on what side of the car you are looking at , This velcro should be separated , If it is not a convertible a sawzall would work , Ed

    Operation and Care booklet was a supplement inserted in the Owner's Guide. This one is for a '62 but I believe it is the same as a '63. Click on pics to enlarge.

        Saw a nice Lark convertible in the salvage yard years ago, but the top and interior were demolished. It seems these 2 brothers went to an auction where they consumed a quantity of barley pop. They ended up with 2 goats so they put them in the car. On the way home they stopped at a cafe to eat and when they came out, they found the goats had eaten the top and the interior of the car.
