Vehicle Description

1960 STUDEBAKER LARK. THIS CAR IS NOT FOR THE FAINT OF HEART. IT WAS ORIGINALLY BORN WITH A 259CI V8 BUT WAS RECENTLY UPGRADED TO A REBUILT STUDEBAKER 289CI V8 OUT OF A 1963 STUDEBAKER HAWK. THIS ENGINE RUNS FANTASTIC. IT STARTS RIGHT UP AND DOES NOT HAVE ANY ISSUES WHATSOEVER. IT WAS ALSO UPGRADED FROM A 3SPD MANUAL TRANSMISSION TO A BORG WARNER T-10 4SPD TRANSMISSION. THIS TRANSMISSION WAS ALSO OUT OF A 1963 STUDEBAKER HAWK. NOT KNOWN IF IT WAS EVER REBUILT BUT IT SHIFTS GREAT. DO KNOW AT THE TIME THE CLUTCH, PRESSURE PLATE AND THROW OUT BEARING WERE REPLACED. IT IS CONNECTED TO A HURST SHIFTER AND BELIEVE ME THIS CAR IS AN ABSOLUTE BLAST TO DRIVE. THE CAR CRUISES AT 55 MILES AN HOUR I BELIEVE THE REAR HAS 373 GEARS IN IT AND SCREAMS AT 70MPH. AT THAT TIME ALL THE BELTS, HOSES,FUEL PUMP, FUEL LINES, HEATER BOX, HEATER LINES AND ANYTHING I HAVE FORGOTTEN HAVE BEEN REPLACED. THE CAR WENT THRU A PRETTY COMPREHENSIVE RESTORATION 3 YEARS AGO. THE CAR RECEIVED A BETTER THEN NEW PAINT JOB THAT IS OUTSTANDING. AT THAT TIME ALL THE CHROME AND RUBBER WERE REMOVED. THE TRIM AND BUMPERS WERE SENT OUT AND RECHROMED. AS YOU CAN SEE IT ALL LOOKS FANTASTIC. ALL THE RUBBER WAS REPLACED TO NEW. THAT INCLUDES EVERY PIECE OF RUBBER INCLUDING FRONT WINDSHIELD, REAR WINDOW AND EVERYTHING ELSE. AND OF COURSE THERE IS NO OVERSPRAY ON THE CAR. THE PAINT JOB IS OUTSTANDING. THERE IS HOWEVER ONE AREA THAT WAS NOT PREPARED PROPERLY AND THAT IS ON THE TOP OF THE DRIVERS SIDE REAR QUARTER PANEL. IF I WAS KEEPING I WOULD FIX IT. OTHER THAN THAT THE PAINT IS DEEP AND RICH. WAY BETTER THAN WHEN IT WAS NEW. ALL THE PANELS ARE RAZOR STRAIGHT THERE ARE NO WAVES. I HAVE GONE OVER THIS CAR SEVERAL TIMES AND FIND THAT THERE WAS MINIMAL BONDO USED YOU HAVE TO REALLY LOOK FOR IT. THE FRONT AND REAR BUMPERS WERE RECHROMED. ALL THE STAINLESS IS EXCELLENT I IMAGINE ITS ALL BEEN RECHROMED. ALL THE DOOR HANDLES AND BOTH MIRRORS HAVE BEEN REPLACED AND ARE PERFECT. ALL THE BADGES HAVE ALSO BEEN REPLACED.
