Absolutely dependable, and cheap to keep
I have replaced nothing since rebuilding in 1992.
Grandpa bought this car new in 1963 in Denison, Texas. He died in 1991. I got all his Studebakers, a'62 GT, several Lark VI's and 2 Lark VIII's.
Compression was getting low at 352,000, so I rebuilt the engine, Pertronix ignition, rebuilt 2 barrel carb, installed a new clutch, new brake drums, shoes, wheel cylinders and master cylinder.
The car has a 3 speed with overdrive and I get about 23 MPG and NEVER worry about a break down.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
