Studebaker US6 "Frozen In Time" (Engine Overhaul)
In the summer of 2009 this 1945 Studebaker US6 with its Hercules JXD engine
was brought back to life and driven 75 miles back to civilization after
being abandoned in the remote Alaskan wilderness and "frozen in time" for
two decades. Now in June 2013 the old war horse is getting some much
needed TLC and a new lease on life. This truck was built on May 23, 1945.
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
Ted Harbit at Nashville 1992
The Chicken Hawk at the first Stude Drags at Music City.
Sorry its short , but I was busy helping to run the drags.

After 2 years of catch-as-catch-can work, the newly rebuilt engine in my
'63 Lark 2-door sedan fires up. Woo hoo... the sweet sound of s Studebaker
1962 Studebaker Lark drive video
I made a video driving around in my 1962 Studebaker Lark Daytona. It's got
a 6 cylinder engine and a 3-speed manual transmission. After finally
adjusting the aftermarket carb properly (Daytona Parts universal carb) it's
getting good gas mileage and driving nicely. You can hear a little bit of
rattling and squeaking, which come from the driver's side window and the
brake pedal, respectively.
