1962 Studebaker Lark Daytona "289 OHV 4 speed Manual Hardtop"
1962 Studebaker Lark Daytona. Early 60's Hardtop gasser with the original
studebaker 289 OHV motor and T10 4 speed manual on the floor. This Stud
also features dual 2 chamber flowmasters with Exhaust knockouts located up near the front
fenders. This is a VERY rare car, and i've yet to see another one like
The 1963 Avanti was the last ditch effort of Sherwood Egbert (his real
name) to rescue the faltering Studebaker. Once again, the company turned
to its ace in the hole, stylist Raymond Loewy, to conceive a car that would
miraculously turn things around. He rented a house in Palm Springs and
there with three young designers and with missionary zeal embarked on
creating something new and revolutionary. The result -- the Avanti, got
attention but didn't save the company. Studebaker was gone three years

Brenda's Studebaker burns it up!
OK in most sports men and women compete separately, segregated. But in
motor sports that's not the case, two cars, two drivers face off and may
the best person win. But there is more to racing than just competing. This
is Brenda in her Studebaker. She's a trophy winner with her Model-T.

1960 Studebaker Lark Convertible Red SumtFG021613
Lark had the drop on the Falcon, Valiant and Corvair in that it hit the
market as a 1959 model, one year earlier than the offerings from the "big
3"! In addition, Lark offered a stationwagon and convertible version
besides the sedan! Larks continued through 1963, then underwent a name
change and finally were out of production during the 1966 model year. It's
really a shame..they offered a 6 and V8 and were competitive...too bad it
didn't last, the company that had started by making Conestoga wagons in the
Studebaker Woody Fastback Custom at SEMA from Eastwood
Check out this interview from SEMA 2013 in Las Vegas. The guys from
Eastwood get an up close look at the amazing '51 Stude Woody that was built
by Hill's Rod & Custom in California. It features incredible wood work as
well as a 390 cid Ford Edsel V8 with a rare injection system that was
designed by aircraft engineers and featured on the cover of Hot Rod
magazine in 1959. This was one of the most popular cars at SEMA and we're
sure you'll be impressed after you watch the video.

your car, truck or motorcycle - welders, plasma cutters, powder coating
