1963 Studebaker Lark Daytona

R2 Supercharged/4 speed


 
 

Here are the pictures I saw before buying the car. It belonged to a ex-Studebaker dealer in Rapid City SD and he had sold the car new. As a matter of fact, this dealer was well known for selling more Avanti powered Studebakers than any other. If a customer wanted a V8, chances are John sold him a R1 or R2. At the time of purchase I assumed I'd either have to part it out, or at best find a donor body to get it back on the road. The Indians had broken out most of the glass and it had sat under a tarp for almost 30 years.
