RARE! 1963 Studebaker Lark Daytona R2 Hardtop, Supercharged, Four-Speed!

At Art & Speed, we like finding those rare gems, and this fully restored 1963 Studebaker Lark Daytona R2 Hardtop is one of only 110 built with the supercharged Jet-Thrust 289ci V8 with a four-speed manual gearbox. This garage-kept Stude has been well-cared for with a lot of documentation to back it up from the Studebaker specialist in Mississippi who owned it. Factory options included front disc brakes, bucket seats, and a twin-traction differential.

From headlight to taillight, everything is rebuilt or replaced with new or NOS parts relatively recently. Those updates start with a repaint using the factory basecoat color, Regal Red, with a clearcoat on top. The body is obviously in great shape, as are the NOS bumpers, as well.

As mentioned above, the engine is the original 289ci V8 but rebuilt to OEM specs with all the right parts. The Paxton SN60 supercharger is also restored, and the engine bay freshened up along with it. The owner even added finned Studebaker valve covers that really set it apart. All bushings have been replaced, including the A-frame, engine, and transmission mounts. At the same time, all the peripherals were rebuilt or replaced, including the fuel pump, starter, radiator, hoses, brake master cylinder, brakes, brake lines, oil lines, and even the exhaust. This car wants for nothing!

Inside, the car is new as well. The red and white bucket seats and dash cover are showing to be in excellent condition, appearing as new. The bright red carpet is showing no signs of wear along with the headliner and door panels. Other features and modifications include a period-correct tachometer and a Hurst four-speed shifter for the Borg-Warner T-10 manual transmission. Lastly, the consigner added 15x7-inch Rev Wheels and radial tires to give it a little more aggressive look, though he includes the factory wheel covers.

This Lark Daytona R2 has been with the seller for over 15 years and drives like-new, if not better. It is now being offered in its turn-key-ready condition for you to enjoy. Fully restored with great attention to detail, you will find this Studebaker a pleasure to drive. Give Art & Speed a call today to check out this rare gem of Americana!
