    Not a Lark chassis. Whats wrong with the one you have? Early Larks had a 108.5 wheelbase increased to 109 in 62 on 2 door models (frame was the same, different location of the rear axle on the leaf springs) & 113" wheel base on 4 doors & wagons. The wheelbase on the 58 was 116.5" while the Hawk carried 120.5"

    Worst case solution would be to splice the front or rear section from a Lark frame to yours. Possible but without a jig setup to ensure keeping the datum line set, very difficult.

        Thanks Warren for the data. The car is from a friend. The chassis seems to be more rusted than normal because the car has been sitting long years in a yard. Probably the best way is to [u]add</u> new rails to the chassis

        Thanks Larry for visit my site. Nice to know that you liked it.
