Super Lark R2 Supercharged V-8 … One of 30 with Skytop!
the early 1960s, Studebaker’s compact-sized Lark offered buyers several
options. From the thrifty “Skybolt Six”
six grocery getter to the Avanti-powered supercharged V-8, whatever your need, Lark
had an answer. Of the
performance-oriented persuasion is this sporty, ultra-rare 1963 Super Lark Daytona Skytop clone. Just 30 1963 Skytop
Larks were produced, making this seldom-seen Studebaker one highly prized by
ultimate sleeper, this Super Lark is powered by a Paxton-supercharged 289 CID V-8 R2 engine
mated to a Borg-Warner T-10 4-speed manual transmission and 3.31
rear-end. This powertrain generates
an impressive 289 horsepower and 303 ft-lbs of torque in stock
form. Other performance enhancements
included with the factory “Super Performance Package” comprise the
following:Forged steel crankshaftForged connecting rodsForged rockersSolid liftersGear-driven camCarter 625-cfm AFB 4-barrel carburetorDual point distributorDana 44 axle“Twin-Traction” differentialDual exhaustFront A-arm suspension with heavy-duty coil springsFront sway bar11” power front disc brakesHeavy-duty cooling system160 MPH speedometerBest
of all, this Super Lark runs and drives as well as it looks.Refinished in Ermine White, its finish has a
beautiful luster. Its black Skyroof top is in excellent
condition, and functions as it should.
The chrome and bright-work are also in excellent condition. The distinctive Mercedes-inspired Lark front
end, Daytona-package fender moldings and “R2” badging offer
plenty of pop. American Racing Torq
Thrust wheels and brand-new tires complete the look.This Super Lark’s interior is equally sporty, featuring White
and Rosemist bucket seats and a center
console. The seating areas, dash
board, and interior door panels are all in excellent condition, as is the rest
of the interior. A full
complement of well-organized and easy-to-read gauges, including a tachometer,
will keep you informed about what’s going on under the hood. You’ll
also appreciate the convenience of its AM
radio and optional “Exclusive Beauty Vanity,” providing a glove-box installed vanity
mirror and makeup tray. Resulting from the marriage of an original Super Lark
chassis and running gear and a Lark Daytona with a Skyroof, this clone was the
creation of John Metzke, who served as the technical advisor to Turning
Wheels Magazine, the official publication of the Studebaker’s Driver’s
Club. It has been featured in Collectible
