Default '59 Studebaker Lark VIII 2 Door Wagon

My car, I traded on it, like I do everything. Yes, I got it from Buggmann. It has 14,000 Original Miles. It also has the bigger 289ci engine. Since I've had it I have did a lot of cleaning on it and just working on little odds an ends. I put a glasspack on it with a turn out and down. Sounds pretty mean, was loud as heck. I also have removed the old Carter and installed a Edelbrock and a 1" spacer. Pictures are from the day I drove it home. That's were I am so far, I'll keep this updated... Hopefully.

You sir have my favorite car of all time. I used to have one but I foolishly sold it thinking it was too far gone to fix and I've been kicking myself ever since.

Man, I would love to have one of these 2 dr wagons. I've down drawings of the '59 wagon a bunch of times and has the possibility of being a cool custom. All it takes is imagination and ingenuity.

Thanks Guys! I need some baby moons for her! Right now I really just plan on lowering it a bit in the front and just enjoying it. The old thing drives great down the road, extremely comfortable. Here are some pics after I cleaned it up.Click image for larger version

Always clean, solid, well-designed cars. Simply beautiful...even in stock form. And the Classic "European" -styled grille/front end looks cool just as it is.

Enjoy it ! Ya don't have to do much to make 'em work !

cool....keep it simple....maybe just buy some factory 62-64 bolt on disk brakes(from me)....one of my Studie buddies swaped out the 6 for an V8 in his 2 door wagon back in about 1975 - it was sweet - but his dad - an old Stude collecter didn't like it to well...hey - do we have a Studebaker HAMB club?

Actually, calling it a two door wagon is like the, proverbial, Model A five window coupe. All 59 Stude wagons were two doors. My aunt bought one new in 59. V8 with a three speed. Loved that car

Just in time for Hallowe'en, maybe you can find some inspiration in these photos, taken at a car show here in Brisbane, Australia a couple of years ago. IMO this is one of the prettiest Lark wagons ever...very subtle and very striking.

Ever since I first learned to drive (the family's 1959 Lark) I have had a soft spot in my heart (or, is it in my head?) for the old Stewdies.

You got a lot of body work in your future on that passenger side! Have you joined the SDC Forum yet? If I recall correctly, there are a lot of SDC Members in your area who would probably want to see and help you on your ride, if you are interested.

Then again you did get rid of a harley... Thats one less oil stain in your driveway!

I've seen 2 dr. Larks made into gassers. They looked pretty good, but for once I like to see Larks made into customs.

Actually, this is the best 2 dr. wagon I've ever seen. Looks nice with the bumpers off and two tone paint, not to mention the mild custom work. This beats gasser in my opinion.

My '59 with 454/TH400/4 wheel disc has pics on 'net under "oldcarfart" or "Deepnhock", Turnerbrake.com excellent source for disc brakes, Stude Driver's Club excellent resource for all Stude items. Last I heard my '59 was in Phoenix area and painted a purpleish/blue color. If needed I still have a pair of NOS '59/'60 tail light lenses ($50.00 to you). Stock suspension with rollbar upgrades will work great.
Enjoy!!

Most of all build what you want, do what you want, it's your car. My uncle has always said, "If you like it, I love it." Meaning doesn't matter if he likes it or not, because it isn't his car.

Hey J -

I've got two of'em. A 59 with the stock 259 and auto trans., my daily driver (my only car..!) and a 60 that's turned into a Chevy powered hot rod. The 60 has been sitting for some time like it is in the pictures while I work on my 54 Conestoga's engine..
Heavilly ported Studebaker cylinder heads, roller cam, single plane manifold...on and on.

http://public.fotki.com/-Mike-/

Click on "60 Lark", and "54 Conestoga".
The 54 currently runs but the flat head 6 isn't much fun to drive with that engine.

Good to see another one out there being driven.

Mike

Me likey.....here's some more. Some wagons for inspiration and an aqua coupe because I like the look.

You can probably find a replacement passenger side door. If it wew me....dog dish hubcaps, brushed chrome bumpers, and a few louvers. And of course a roof rack.

Too cool... I drove up from Fayetteville and looked at the car when "Buggmann" had it for sale. It was a little too rough for me, so I bought a '57 Stude wagon out of New York instead. Better for everyone, I'm not a Lark guy anyways. VERY cool to see someone get that '59 and do something with it. Looks like you're really enjoying the crap out of that little longroof.

"Buggmann" had the upper tailgate handle when I looked at the car. Did he not include that with the sale?

See attached pic of my '57. Can't wait to bolt that bumper back on.

I got a 54 Conestoga. Someone tried to rat it all to hell... I am fixing it up... Luckily the previous owner changed it over to 12v alternator, and kept it running in good order.... Granted its the 6, not the V8, but it's still an awesome ride... And it's family friendly. I also gotta say that your wagon is awesome, I wish mine was that clean.

I think that your wagon is one of the best out there.
