1965 STUDEBAKER LARK DAY­TONA 500

Autosport (UK) - - AUTOSPORT INTERNACIONAL -

Es­ti­mate: £100,000-£130,000

The dis­tinc­tive Studebaker Lark Day­tona 500 is an­other one of the Autosport In­ter­na­tional sale co­hort that’s a firm hit at Good­wood.

It’s the only known Lark Day­tona 500 race car in Europe, and pro­duces a healthy 430bhp from its Chevro­let V8. That helped it fin­ish se­cond in the open­ing St Mary’s Tro­phy race at last year’s Re­vival, driven by triple Bri­tish Tour­ing Car cham­pion Matt Neal. This lim­ited-edi­tion model from the fi­nal year of pro­duc­tion takes its name from a star­ring role as the pace car for the Day­tona 500. It heads to sale from the col­lec­tion of Sil­ver­stone Auc­tions man­ag­ing di­rec­tor Nick Whale.
