  • Polarity of electrical system on 1962 Lark

    Is the 1962 Lark a positive grounded system?

      It takes a 24/24C (not 24F) 12 volt battery with the negative side grounded.

        Beginning in 1956, all American cars and trucks were 12 volts, negative ground. During the 6 volt era, some were negative ground and some were positive ground.

          Is this the same battery I will need for the 64 champ? And does the C designate which side/end I want the anodes positioned on? Thanks,Steve

            Yes, this is the battery that fits Studebaker cars and light trucks from 1956-1966, except for 1963 Avantis.
            The C indicates the location of the terminals. (A 24F has the terminals in reversed positions.) [A strange thing that I noticed recently - This month, I owned an Acura and a Honda. One used a 24C and the other used a 24F.]
