1966 Studebaker Daytona 2 Door Sports Sedan

Not exactly a complete running example, but very important to get every single one of these on the register no matter what their state: There were just 620 V8s built for 66, so these are exceptionally rare.. Looks like this one was originally Sienna Red - and would have had a vinyl roof in either black or white.. Looks like lots of the parts are there too, but a big project even though it doesn't look like there's much rust.

In the original advertisement, the seller made the following comments:

"For sale is a 1966 Studebaker Lark that would be a complete rebuild/restoration project. What we know, there’s a frame/chassis on stands and there are parts strewn between 5-6 cabinets, along with parts in various spots on the property (in Oceanside, CA). According to dad (whom has passed away recently) he had everything to get it rebuilt, but he never got the chance to. It’s a ’66 Lark 2-door "Daytona Sports Sedan" (F-body), built between January 14-16, 1966. All parts may or may not be actually for the vehicle as dad liked to customize his Studebakers with parts of other years or models to make it as he liked. As such I cannot confirm all parts are there, or if there are a multitude of “extra” parts from the stockpile dad had acquired. If interested in procuring this and all parts, or would like to see the original pics, please reach out. This is pretty much all the info we have. If interested, please PM me. It will (obviously) require a trailer/hauler to gather up all parts."
