My dad this time.

Along with buying a new Murano this fall, my dad's buying a 1962 Studebaker Lark coupe with 28,000 original miles and full documentation.

SPECS:

L6 with 120HP
Three-Speed column shift



No rust on the body, but needs attention on the floorboards.


Apparently a cool car.

I had never seen one before until I Googled it.

We'll know soon.

Hopefully it's still there next week when my parents get back from their trip.

Hehe, those cars are awesome. Wernt those made in ohio?

That car has to cost a ton, ive never seen a car that old with so few miles on it. I'm actually a fan of the L6.

Does anyone else think the girl in the cardomain thing is extreamly hot...?

Man I had forgotten about those. Haven't seen one in a long, long time... Most of the old farts on here know what they are, I'm sure ;)

Your dad's got some taste! I have such a soft spot for orphans, but I don't think I've ever actually seen a Lark in person--Studes in general are few and far inbetween anymore. 28,000 documented miles are nothing to sneeze at, either. :D Looks like a great buy.

Yep.

The guy is asking $2,500 for it and proclaims, "You may be surprised at what I'd take for this car."

We already have a friend wanting to sell us a good running Dodge 440 to shove under the hood.

Oh...Studebakers were made in South Bend, Indiana. The museum is still open where the factory once was.
