1962 Studebaker Lark Daytona Description:

Originally a 259 CI V8 Daytona, this car now has a rebuilt 1964 289 CI V8 with 4-barrel AFB Carburetor. Rebuilt Flightomatic automatic with 1st gear start conversion and torque converter rebuilt (~2012). Dual Master cylinder and Turner front disc brakes make the car stop straight and fast. 3.31:1 Twin Traction rear axle. Rebuilt power steering works perfectly without leaks. Car runs great with lots of power, no smoke, great oil pressure. Shifts are very firm and the 1st gear start really makes the car fun to drive while it also is great on the highway.

Car was restored by Jim Turner (~2005), the same Jim that sells the Studebaker Turner disc brake conversion kits, so you know it was done correctly. It was in Arizona until I bought it in 2014. It is an extremely reliable and sorted driver that I have enjoyed for 6 summers.

The Lark shows very well at local car shows. It has won the orphan class multiple times. It has always been stored inside and dry since the restoration.

It has a re-cored 3 row radiator and thermostatically controlled auxiliary cooling fan to stay cool and an auxiliary fuel pump to help instantly start the car every time.

Power convertible top has no tears and it functions as it should with new cylinders (2017) and no leaks.There is a red cover included for when the top is down. Paint in very nice, with only minor imperfections from use. Glass was all replaced at time of restoration and is perfect.Interior was replaced and is in good condition, but the carpet does have some stains and fading from the top being down.A NOS 63 full gauge cluster was installed (original will come with car) and a working NOS clock was installed.

The chrome is in good condition, but not concours. The wing windows were replated. The stainless throughout the car is shiny and dent free. Since I have owned it, I also replaced the rear springs and tried to make the care as authentic as possible while enjoying all the drivability and safety improvements.

Car is located outside Buffalo, NY
