    It would be very interesting to know just how many 1963 & 1964 Larks/Lark-types that were made in South Bend got sold new in Canada, even though they were being made in Hamilton. I really do wonder if a Standard or a Challenger made it to Canada, or an R-series 1963 Lark, as they weren't assembled in the Hamilton Plant, not to mention, black interior 1964 Lark-types.

    (If you recall any that stand out in your mind, reply in a new thread.)

    Sorry Craig, I don't believe such info is available anywhere.

    Might have found another... The body tag was missing.

    Located in a Studebaker bone yard in the heart of Kentucky. Parts have been saved in the past and the frame might be destined to get a half-million mile Avanti back on the road.

    Bob, it's very hard to make out the serial number on my screen. Is it 64V6022?

    Not Bob, but that (64V6022) is what it looks like to me.

    That's one way to get a '64 Daytona convertible!

    Yes, Stu; that is certainly 64V6022. Original destination Illinois, Astra White with red interior and black top with individually-adjustable front seats. Original engine was 259 #VJ313, which has obviously been replaced with an earlier 289.

    Body number should be 187. Since the Body Tag is missing, look for another 1964 Daytona convertible to show up somewhere, wearing this car's tag for whatever reason (like maybe a no-rust 1963 tub having been used to re-create this car...although if that were the case, you'd think the Serial Number tag would also be missing.)

    Obviously Bob you were studying the factory figures at the same time as I was, so here is some more information.

    The car was built with automatic, power steering, bucket seats, tinted windshield, Climatizer, electric washer, undercoat, wheel discs, front seat belts.

    This now brings the total units located to 168 or 23.9%. However 26.9% of South Bend units built have been identified. Thanks to Patrick Fuchs of Kentucky for locating this one. How many more are out there?

    Cool, Stu, but please double-check: I believe the car has Option #45; non-reclining, individually-adjustable front seats, rather than Option #44, non-reclining bucket seats.

    (You know, if this car was a Duesenberg, it would get restored, rather than parted out.) BP

    You are absolutely correct Bob. But then I have an excuse. My eyes are older than yours, therefore not quite as sharp. Happy New Year!

    Think of all the convertibles that could be saved if new torque box rockers were available!

    Between 1960 and 1964 production? I was figuring at least 5. Probably could save a few hardtops, too!

    To be honest, I could use a pair for a 1964 Daytona convertible, but I figure I will fabricate my own when the time comes.

    Another one found

    I have just been informed that Jim Turner has acquired a 64 convertible that was previously not recorded. I am currently on vacation in the sunny south and will get the Registru updated when I return home.

    According to Post 532 in this thread, it was shipped to J.M. Brown Motor Co, in North Vancouver.

    If it was sold new in Victoria, I'll bet the selling dealer arranged to pick it up at that North Van dealer and take it back to Victoria, perhaps along with a couple of other brand new Studebakers. I suspect that would be the case as he may not have purchased enough vehicles to justify the expense of paying the carrier to haul it on the ferry for him.

    Yes,, I agree. The original owner worked for the gov. Sometime shortly after buying the car he got transferred to rainy port Hardy. Back then it was a ferry boat ride.no roads except a few logging roads.hence no miles on the car
