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.

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

My 1959 4E13 V/8 5sp OD dump bed working at the local drag strip. We were
doing prep work for our new racing surface. Now my Lark will have a
smoother track to run on. The truck is like an older brother looking out
for the Lark.
