A Lark from Studebaker

The Studebaker Lark is a compact car that was produced from 1959 to 1966. This circa 1960 model was found in New Mexico. The Lark came with a choice of an inline 6-cylinder or a 259-cubic inch V-8. The V-8 was measured from 0-to-60 in about 10 seconds, fast for the time. Most of the small-car competition (Ford Falcon, Chevrolet Corvair, Plymouth Valiant) were closer to 20 seconds.
