The lady and the Lark

Not only is this a “little old lady” car, but the advertisement for the Pick of the Day, a 1960 Studebaker Lark four-door sedan, includes a photo of the lady standing next to the car.

Here’s the story, as told by the private seller in West Bend, Milwaukee:

“This is an actual documented widowed old lady Missouri barn find that was stored for 30 years on blocks,” the seller notes in the car’s advertisement on ClassicCars.com.

“Starts, runs, and drives solid, straight and true. Extremely reliable. I would drive this Ermine White (white with slight green tint) vintage beauty anywhere.”

In fact, the seller adds that in the past six months, the car has done road trips to Kansas City and South Bend, and twice to northern Wisconsin. It also has been used on occasion as a daily driver.

The odometer shows 39,000 original miles.  The car also wears its original paint, and the interior is “incredibly clean,” the seller says.

“Undercarriage is solid with no rust,” the seller promises. “Needs nothing.”

The seller adds that the flathead 6-cylinder engine cruises nicely at highway speeds and is linked to a 3-speed gearbox. The seller said the car has been serviced recently by a respected Studebaker specialist mechanic.

The asking price is $8,500.
