On The Go Outtake: 1962 Studebaker Lark – Stranger In A Strange Land

Seeing this Lark always brings a smile to my face. I’ve seen it before, but finally nabbed it. It’s from another world; well, it actually does look like it could have been from Europe or such, as its size, shape and details just aren’t very typically American. An alternate-reality Ultra Minx or Morris Worcestershire.


Its rear compartment looks out of proportion to the front, something that happened a year earlier with the Lark Cruiser. For ’62, it was across the board for the four door sedans, with a 113″ wheelbase, to the two door’s 109 inches. Makes for a nice bump in rear leg room, which was actually quite welcome, given the high floor on these.

It looks so petite in today’s traffic.
