Vehicle Description

STK 3289 1960 Studebaker Lark VIII

The Studebaker Lark was produced between 1957 and 1966. It was the first 'compact' car of the generation, preceding the Falcon, Corvair and Valiant. The Lark was based simply on the structure of the earlier full-sized Studebaker, but scaled down in size. The Lark VIII concept, a V8 powered compact, was unique to the times. Just under 5,500 Lark VIII convertibles were produced in 1960 and this Lark VIII is a nice, partially restored example of that great model. The current owner has had this Studebaker for over 30 years. The Lark has had a respray of Suntone Yellow that is in fair condition. The chrome and stainless are in good shape as is the black power convertible top. The restored black vinyl interior appears original right down to the rolled/pleated style upholstery. There are factory gauges plus an additional gauge package and seat belts have been added for safety. An original Studebaker AM radio that sits comfortably in the dash, but needs a little love. This Lark VIII convertible is powered by the Studebaker 259ci OHV V8 that was rated at 180hp/260lb/ft with a 2-barrel Stromberg carburetor. The owner states that the engine has not been rebuilt. A Flight-O-Matic 3-speed automatic transmission transfers power to what is believed to be a Dana 'Twin-Traction' (TT) positraction differential with 3.31:1 gears. Steering is power assisted and brakes are manual hydraulic 4-wheel drum (10"). BFGoodrich Silvertown wide-white bias-ply tires are mounted on 15" factory steel wheels w/full hubcaps. This is a solid, very original Studebaker Lark VIII convertible. ALL VEHICLES SOLD "AS IS".
