GR Auto Gallery is pleased to present this 1960 Studebaker Lark for purchase. Studebaker-Packard was looking for the best way to recuperate their money they had been losing for the last couple years going into the mid-50's. This time was hard for the oldest American automotive company due to post-war economy and concerns but their company president, Harold E. Churchill, thought of an idea to win their segment back. They began producing compact versus their typical full-size model and to save cost and keep size practicality in place, they kept the same platform but eliminated the vehicle hangover on each end. This vehicle could still seat six people, store plenty of luggage and became a quick success due to these fine points. By the end of the 50's the Lark model became popular enough to keep them in business similar to what the Champion model had done for them prior to the war.
This 1960 Studebaker Lark came out of Arizona in 2009 and was restored as a restomod. It is offered here for sale as a really fun, unique build that cruises like a modern car. It’s powered by a 350ci V8 engine paired with a 5-speed manual transmission. It also features an Edelbrock carburetor, new thermostat, power steering, power front disc brakes, new driveshaft, new clutch assembly, new water pump, digital tachometer, new (and bucket) seats, electric fan, and much more! This is a really cool cruiser that has a lot of time and money invested in to it! Please call or email for more details!
