Today, the Studebaker Lark is forgotten as a model. Not only was it one of the first compact cars from a domestic car company, but it was one of the most successful cars for a little while. The Lark was built from 1959 to 1966 in three generations (via Bring A Trailer).
Most of the cars featured straight six engines but V8 power was also available. Today, you can pick up a nice Studebaker Lark Convertible for under $15,000, which is a steal. And if you’re looking to differ from everybody else at the car meets, you should do just that.
