By 1961 the sales of the three-year-old Lark began to decline. Although it was fresh and new in 1959, it began to look aged by 1961, and it lost more and more sales to the fresh new Big 3 compacts. With increased competition from the brand-new Buick Special, Oldsmobile F-85, and Pontiac Tempest, the Lark didn't have such a good year in 1961. Fortunately, new, dynamic president Sherwood H. Egbert called upon his friend Brooks Stevens of Milwaukee, Wisconsin to redesign the aging Hawk and Lark lines for 1962 on a shoestring budget. Stevens lengthened the car and added new styling that made the car look longer, lower, and wider. He also gave the Lark a new grille that gave it the appearance of a Mercedes-Benz (Mercedes was distributed by Studebaker in the US at the time). Stevens' new Lark and GT Hawk were successful, and sales increased. Studebaker was selected to pace the Indy 500 in 1962, and they hoped to supply a new Avanti to pace. Due to nagging production problems for the Avanti, Studebaker was forced to supply a Lark convertible (the Lark was the first compact to pace the Indy 500).
Offered for sale is a 1962 Studebaker Lark Convertible. What makes this Lark special is the engine that is under the hood. A rare 259 cu in V8 powers the convertible with 180 hp. An automatic transmission transmits the power and the Lark sports dual exhaust, manual steering and drum brakes.
The Studebaker presents itself well in a light cream color with dual cream and turquoise vinyl interior. A turquoise convertible boot covers the black cloth soft top. The chrome and bright work are nice as is the paint work. The Lark may be categorized as a very nice driver with the grunt and power of a rare V8. A car you can enjoy at a reasonable collector car price.
