  • two tone colors

    If my gold 64 Cruiser had been two-tone from the factory , what color would the top have been? Would any Cruisers have had a vinyl top or a textured finish on the top?Thanks

    If I recall my facts right, with the exception of the '61 Hawk, two tones were special order or fleet only, there were no standard two tones.

    If you want points, don't two tone it unless the build sheet shows it!
    If you don't care about points (At least in a stock class!) I think a white top would look great on one of these!

      A 1964 Cruiser would not have been two-toned from the factory. Other than for some special or fleet sales, I do not believe Studebaker two-toned any cars after 1961, not counting a vinyl top as two-tone.

        Barring any unusual employee or executive special ordered cars, no regular production '64 Lark types had a Vinyl Roof.

        The '65-'66 Daytona Sport (2 Dr.) Sedan and some '66 Cruisers did.

        You can use the roof Moulding and Cap used on these cars for a paint break on a '64 two tone. [^]
