Thanks Ray - is good of you to post more pictures. If any forum members want to see more, please let me or Ray know. In the age of digital cameras one can get snap happy with camera and we took a bunch of pictures.

Was looking at side shot. Might be able to replace very rear of roof with 58-63 Tbird rear of roof. Leave rear side windows as is and starting mid-pillar graft on Tbird roof. Idea came to me while looking at posted pictures. Lark roof is likely to tall for that. Will take measurements. Anyone here who has 61-63 rear roof measurements? Height - pillar width - roof width at bottom & top of pillar. 59 Galaxie roof is also a candidate.

Like to have definite Ford identity when done. Top of front fenders with curve down they have may be good for early Falcon fender top ornaments.
Have Ford identity ideas? --- please post them.
Bill

Default Fordabaker ...

A lot of really nice work there. I know how builds can tend to get out of hand. Maybe a truck sourced Blue Oval worked int the grill? Mike

Default Trim pieces

Thanks - That gave me a further idea. In lower left corner of grill 62 Larks (nose and grill we are using) have an abstract emblem of a Lark bird. Blue oval could go there. Using factory location for Lark emblem to mount Blue Oval.

Went to swap meet today with tape measure in hand. Found that 65 Falcon, 56 Fairlane, 62 Galaxie side trim all have potential on Lark.

Thank you for the visual assist.

Default 1961 Fordabaker Lark!

From Bill ~ FINSRIN. Continuing with building 1961 Lark as a hotrod. Parts are Studebaker, FoMoCo, or general after market. Ford engine, trans, rear end, wiper motor, hood scope, seats. Looking at possible FoMoCo tail lights too. So is a Fordabaker.
Took body off frame this week.
Was on frame for fabrication compatible with frame, drive line, etc. Rear seat fabrication to take 2005 Mustang seat, four A/C ducts, power cables from trunk mounted battery and power cut off switch was involved. Body off frame to finish what was tack welded, access to firewall welding. After that: priming & painting all of body inside & outside and undercoating underside. Then back on frame for final assembly, wiring, interior, etc..... Here are some pix.

Thanks Ray for posting pictures. Had various interruptions (life gets in the way) past couple years, but back at it. Progressing at good pace now. One does not appreciate what is involved in non-stock fabrication until in midst of it yourself. Not doing this much on another car.
