    It's not so bad, I kinda' like the "Original Patina" Look! I'm not a member of SDC yet.

    I really like this pic. I think the lighting looks awesome, It reminds me of an old school photo. Might be a good one for the calendar. ;) ;) lol
     
  6. I've seen 2 dr. Larks made into gassers. They looked pretty good, but for once I like to see Larks made into customs.
     
  7. 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!!

    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
     
  13. 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.
